So far I have seen comments on particular field marks that eliminate all of the regular Oregon Empids. I appreciate this approach. But for me the bill and eyeing pattern eliminates all but a “western” flycatcher type. None of the photos reveal the base of the bill width. A better question might be Pacific-slope vs Cordilleran.

Subject: [obol] An interesting Empid at Hatfield Lake on November 10

All,
While birding Hatfield Lake a couple of days ago I encountered an interesting empid. I have been on the road, just returned home today and downloaded some digi-scoped photos of the bird and entered the trip list into ebird. I have yet to work out the I.D. and would welcome any comments or suggestions. Could lead to some interesting discussion and a chance to learn. Photos and notes can be found here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S76175560<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fchecklist%2FS76175560&data=04%7C01%7C%7C9f04d7b3ae4040f04b5e08d8876e9cca%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637408256426074394%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=W%2FYl7REZjqsqWJbWFCtNwHAp7vtdcGGECHDlda3%2F5oM%3D&reserved=0>
