Help with Empid number 2, Sacramento, California, April 30th,


Recommended Posts

I called this a Dusky in the field, but I'm not so sure any more. This empid seemed to be smaller than the Pacific-slope that chased it a few times. The call sounded like a whit, allthough I'm not the best at telling empid calls apart. I attempted to get audio several times but the bird would always just go quiet, which was very annoying. Is this a Dusky Flycatcher, or is this something else?

I report these kind of posts/members, it is obvious click bait. I mean really, praising the article and writing style of a simple ID request? Sorry @Aidan B, but your writing style isn't as impressive as minion890 claims, don't take it personally. :classic_laugh:

Typos might make that statement questionable. :classic_laugh:

As good your writing may be, I don't think minion890 will be back to review it. :classic_laugh:

 

Sorry I can't help with the ID.

It’s primaries seem too short for Hammonds, bill is pretty narrow (too narrow for Pac-slope) but too long to Hammonds, relatively round head, pretty slender and long-tailed looking, pale supraloral, etc. Looks like Dusky. Might be rare in your area though?

Gray, Dusky, and Hammond's are all rare in my area, although my patch is by far the best place for empids in Sacramento county. Given the big push of empids this day, I would not be surprised if this was a Dusky.
