  1. Hi Charlie. The illustrations are fantastic and precise with the narrative pointing out the subtle differences between Empids. It contains lots of side-by-side comparisons, range maps, and sonograms of songs and calls as well as detailed figures of diagnostic field marks. This compact little book should go a long way toward helping me decipher these difficult birds next spring.

  2. I don't have any experience with Hammond's. I've just received a copy of North American Flycatchers by Cin-ty Lee and comparing your bird with the description and images in the book seems to be a match for Hammond's. Noting the steep forehead, long primary projection, relatively short forked tail, and dark chest. I can't wait to see the expert's comments. Great pictures!
