At 10:30 AM a Gray Flycatcher was observed by the ranger residences. The flycatcher was on the southwest side viewed from the stair case watching the power lines in between the back of the residence and up to the water tanks.
It appear first on the power lines near 10AM.
Then disappeared 20-25 minutes and was relocated in the cypress tree and again it perched on the power line for sometime long enough (5 minutes?) to put a scope on the bird to detail the features.
A large Empidonax light gray over all, long in appearance, with a long tail, slight pale band above the bill
(forehead). The bill was long with a dark tip and lower mandible orange in color. Distinctive was it's tail dipping.
Also present were Pacific Slope Flycatchers, Willow Flycatcher and Western Wood.
Weather conditions were windy with clear blue sky.
Enjoy the weekend
