Subject: [obol] Re: Is this a Western Wood-Pewee?
For what it’s worth (and forgive me if this has already been mentioned), there is a possibly not well-known field mark that rules out Western Wood-Pewee for Jim’s bird: it has white undertail coverts. Western Wood-Pewees (and Olive-sided Flycatchers) have mottled gray undertail coverts. It isn’t always obvious in the field if the lighting isn’t right, but I think it’s pretty clear in this photo.
