  1. I saw these two in the foothills of Salt Lake city on November 11th. Possible migratory, fall or winter range. Very close to the city as well as dry mountain habitat. Unfortunately I do not recall the song but the photos are fairly detailed. I looked through my field guide and think they are Yellow-Bellied Flycatchers, but neither has a pronounced eye ring. I also feel that their beaks are stubby for a flycatcher. Let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help with the ID. Thanks! Individual 1 [img=https://motomanch.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/img_0234.jpg] Individual 2 [img=https://motomanch.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/img_0248.jpg] [img=https://motomanch.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/img_0273.jpg]
  2. Thought it was maybe a Western Wood-Pewee or a Western Bluebird juvenile not sure though. Thanks in advance.
  3. What Flycatcher?

    8/11/17, Dearborn, MI...have pictures of a young one and the last photo I believe is an adult, same species. Let me know if you want me to brighten that last photo.
  4. flycatcher?

    Vancouver Island, BC. Any hope IDing this out-of-focus guy? Looks like a flycatcher to me but I'm not sure
  5. NW Ontario, a week or two ago. There were a handful in the area that were dive bombing a squirrel whenever it made noise.
  6. 2 bird struggle

    Need assistance to identify 2 birds. I've combed my Kaufman bird guide to the frustration point, unable to find suitable matches using pictures and descriptions. Unknown Bird #1: The eye and chest colors keep me from matching this bird to the female Great-tailed Grackle. I know there can be color variations in birds, but would like confirmation/concurrence from others. Or maybe it's a different bird altogether. Location/Date: Tempe, Arizona on 07/12/2017 Environment: Park with fake lake surrounded by trees and landscaping. Size of bird: ~10-12 inches from tail tip to crest Link to photo gallery is Here Unknown Bird #2: Might be a juvenile. Location/Date: Tempe, Arizona on 07/12/2017 Environment: Park with fake lake surrounded by trees and landscaping. Size of bird: ~8-10 inches from tail tip to crest Link to photo gallery is Here Thanks in advance!
  7. This spring, I had some migrating empidonax flycatchers show up in my yard, mainly Hammond's, but these guys stood out from them. All of these were taken in a window between 5/10/2017 and 5/17/2017. 1. Dusky/Gray Flycatcher? 2. Dusky/Hammond's/Gray? And here's one more that I just want a confirmation on: 3. Hammond's?
  8. Flycatcher ID Requested

    I always have trouble differentiating between an Eastern Phoebe and the Eastern Wood Pewee. I believe this to be an Eastern Phoebe given the underside of the bill is yellow as opposed to black. Correct? Image taken 6/18/2017 in SE PA. Thank you!
  9. All photos/video taken in the last few days around Dearborn, MI. Please correct or confirm these IDs. 1. House Wren? 2. Willow Flycatcher 3. Great-crested Flycatcher?
  10. Saw this non vocalizing flycatcher yesterday in maricopa county. I have never seen yellow only on flanks before. It has white tips on tail feathers ventrally but dorsal view doesn't reveal white tips. Any help is appreciated.
  11. This non vocalizing flycatcher was taken yesterday in maricopa county, AZ. I was drawn to the dark band across yellow belly. Not sure which type of flycatcher it is. Thanq in advance.

  15. Flycatcher at Gamboa Resort in central Panama during May. Superciliaries separated at back of head, so Kiskadees ruled out. It is a Rusty-Margined Flycatcher (also confirmed at same time) or a Boat-Billed Flycatcher?
  16. An overall yellowish flycatcher with a bright yellow belly, olive head and vest, gray back with a yellow rump the same color as the belly. I can't seem to find any birds that match this one in particular. Photos taken through window resulting into bad blurry quality. Seen on 5/2/2017, Douglas County, Washington (central Washington).
  17. This little fella is about the size of a chickadee. It hangs around near the ground, flitting between branches. My confusion stems from the incomplete and poorly-defined eye ring and the substantial yellow-green under the wing and along the tail. If I'm on target it'll be the first flycatcher in my collection. What say you?
  18. Hi, I am new to this site. I took this photo yesterday (4/12/17) in maricopa county, arizona. It was sitting and didn't vocalize. Beak is bigger than that of ash throated. Is this a dusky flycatcher? Thanq for your time.
  19. Albino .. Flycatcher?

    Hello! Spotted in Sacramento, CA. March 25th. This morning I spotted something really interesting in my backyard! It's absolutely an albino, but I am so curious as to what? I was kind of thinking albino Black Phoebe because there was one of those kind of chasing it around and hanging out with it. What do you guys think? I'm not an especially seasoned birder, so this is out of my realm.
  20. Flycatcher ID

    Hello! I visited Big Cypress National Preserve in South Florida and came across this bird. I only noticed it after while going through my photos. The area is known for having Eastern Phoebe's and Great Crested Flycatchers, however, I feel as though this one might not be one of those. It also could be the lighting. Please let me know your insights! Thank you!
  21. Hello all, Ok I am posting for the first time. I am a NYC birder, but the ID request is for a bird I obsereved in January 2016 in the state of Arizona. This flycatcher was observed in Buenos Aires NWR--Arivaca Cienega, Pima County, Arizona, US, on January 5th. At first thought it was a Dusky but was told that the flicking of the tail was characteristic of Gray Flycatcher. Anyway, today I am revisiting the photos and find that the bill might be right for Hammond's, do Gray FC's have short pointy bills like the one in my photos? But I look at the extension of the primary projections and it appears that they do not go out very far at all, giving the impression of short primary projections. If so then this is not good for Hammonds. Other features include a nearly teardrop shaped eye-ring, and a greenish-yellowish back. I would appreciate any other field markers I am not aware of and any help that this community can offer. Thank you, C├ęsar
  22. please help me identify this bird ? picture was taken in San Diego, California on October 29th 2016
  23. I have just recently began noticing birds and was thrilled today to have a new beauty at my feeder. I have poured over images and am not sure what it is. I saw it today, September 29, near a river in southeastern New Hampshire.
  24. The photos were taken Aug. 6 in far Western Massachusetts. The photo was taken on some powerlines that were about 8-10 feet off the ground, above a stretch of bushes/thicket. The broader habitat was a pond that is itself surrounded by mixed forest with fairly dense cover. Eastern Pewees were readily heard this morning, as were Eastern Phoebes. Unfortunately this little guy was silent. He sallied out several times, returning to the same spot except when he moved from the power lines to a branch. The apparently all-black bill in conjunction with what I consider to be conspicuous white - not buffy - wing bars are throwing me for a bit of a loop. So...thoughts? I initially chalked it up to a juvenile phoebe given the height at which I saw it and the habitat, but the bars seem too white and pronounced, plus the eye ring doesn't compute. Juvenile Pewee? Or maybe it's actually an empid and I've been barking up the wrong tree.
