I'm guessing this is a Flycatcher of some sort? Or?

Maybe Eastern Wood-pewee? I think the wing bars eliminate Eastern Phoebe; plus the rufous upper tail. Wait for others to chime in.

I was wondering if it might be a Pewee, or Phobe - too. Will do, thanks for your input though!

It looks like an eastern phoebe to me. They can have weak wingbars when they're young.

Agree with BarnSwallow -- the wingbars are right for juvenile Phoebe, and the bill seems entirely dark below. (It does seem a bit long for Phoebe, maybe some feathers on the face are still coming in?) Incidentally, despite what all the books show, fresh juvenile Phoebes can have pretty strong cinnamon wingbars.

Thanks all! I have a few more pictures of it, and mostly in all of them, the lower part of the bill is yellow. Does that still qualify it as a juvenile Eastern Phoebe or?

LOL! @ the avatar comments. And as for the comments concerning the picture - I humbly thank you. :) :D

Why is this not a Great-crested Flycatcher?

So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

Okay, upon closer inspection of my pictures - it seems to be that the "yellow" I saw was actually his mouth open and around the corners. If there was a blush emoticon here, I'd choose it so instead I'll choose this... :unsure: :lol:

Here's the second photo...

The color, proportions and head shape are wrong for GCF. It doesn't have the white edging to the wing feathers, or the rufous tail. Here's a good pic of one from nearly the same angle. http://www.google.co...02&tx=112&ty=65

Aww, shucks! Thanks, Cestma! I picked it because it almost looks like its smiling.

Ah okay. It does look a lot like that one too! One thing I remember about it, is it was very curious. Flying up to the window, then back, then up again.

By the way, excellent pictures!
