Interesting, but... There currently are no Willow Flycatcher reports in the Continental US on eBird. It may be a Northern Mockingbird doing Willow Flycatcher. I have heard the resident Mocker here on Millstone Point do Killdeer each Spring before any arrive. Willows really shouldn't be showing up for another 4 to 6 weeks yet. I find it fascinating though that the Mockers start imitating species just a short time before they arrive. It would almost seem episodic memory.
