There are currently Gray, Hammond's, and Western Flycatchers all in the same general area at Mile Square Regional Park. eBirders, we would appreciate it if, when reporting these birds without a photograph, you could provide a description of the bird and how it was identified and distinguished from the other two species. Characteristics to describe could include shape of the eyering, bill color/length, primary projection length, tail length, behavior, etc. We are still seeing the occasional misidentification, and providing an adequate description of the bird when a photograph is not available will help us to determine if you had the correct species or not during our record reviews.
