[This photo of a Willow Flycatcher is from someone online who calls himself “Muskrat”]
I swear I don’t know how people identify flycatchers. I get a quick glimpse of a bird flitting through the trees, I go to my bird book and it looks like any of about 5 different flycatchers. Another glimpse, another look at the book, no help. And again. And again. So all I can say is, we have SOME kind of flycatcher visiting our yard regularly. That’s a new one for us! Very exciting. I only wish I knew what the little fella was. (If I had to guess, I’d guess Hammond’s, but I wouldn’t bet heavily on it!).
