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

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:<>
