Subject: [cobirds] Flycatcher Help Please-Longmont


All:


Had a couple of migrants come through the yard this evening, a Wilson's
and.... a flycatcher. Wish I could blame my lack of ID skills on worn,
late season birds but I'll readily admit that smaller flycatchers are tough
for me on a good day.


Location: Suburban back yard in Longmont.


Behavior: Moving from branch to branch, did not see it going up or out and
back to the same point to catch bugs. Slow, irregular tail flicks that
seemed to go upwards. Also seen at lunch time in a small pine tree very
low to the ground. No sounds heard.


ID Notes: Was thinking maybe a Hammonds, but bill appears to be longer
than all the pics I've looked at. Other thought was a Cordilleran, but eye
ring in photos appears to be fairly uniform and without the slight tear
drop, and while the head has a slight ragged crest, seems to be subdued.


I appreciate any and all suggestions! Photo's aren't the best, light was
low and I cropped them a bit as well.


Jay Hutchins, Longmont.
