  1. I considered that, but my understanding is that the Western doesn't make it into AK and it didn't seem to match anything I could find on the GW / Herring hybrid.
  2. This was taken just south of Anchorage, AK on 07/11/20. Pretty confident in my ID, but being from FL I was definitely out of my comfort zone. Any input would be appreciated.
  3. This was taken on 07/19/20 in Saguaro National Park. The eye-ring is what I am basing the ID on vs. the Black-capped. Didn't really get a decent pic of the tail feathers from below.
  4. This was taken in Miller Canyon near Sierra Vista, AZ on 07/26/20. About 98% sure of the ID, but since I am not from the area, would appreciate any additional input on this ID. The only other possibilities are very rare visitors and the bill alone seems to dismiss those options.
  5. Yeah, the habitat was brushy with basically no trees and I had that play into my ID thoughts as well, but I have been shot down a few times where these guys end up where they typically aren't supposed to be.
  6. I guess I should have said the presence of rufous in the tail eliminates the Dusky-capped.
  7. This was taken at the overlook at Fort Bowie National Historic Site in AZ. The lack of rufous in the tail eliminates the Dusky-capped. The very light yellow on the belly and whitish throat also suggests Ash-throated to me. Bill size also looks like it is smaller than the Brown-crested. All I have experience with is the Great Crested Flycatcher and it looks like the Brown-crested bill is more in line with the Great Crested Flycatcher. Would appreciate any additional input on this ID.
  8. This is from SE AZ (Miller Canyon near Sierra Vista, AZ) on 07/2720. I though the lack of rufous in the tail was the defining characteristic. Hoping for some input on this ID.
  9. This was today in Charleston, SC. Felt confident in the ID, but this is a new bird for me so I wanted to make sure. Appreciate any feedback.
  10. This was taken 05/06/18 in Williams AZ. This is the best pic I had, but never got a pic from the front. The scaling on the bottom gave me pause and without a pic of the front, I am not sure. The forehead is black and the location would indicate Gambel's, but would appreciate some input from the West Coast Crew.
