Gray Flycatcher and Vesper Sparrow?


Recommended Posts

I saw these birds in Davenport, WA today.  The flycatcher was perched and slowly pumping its tail before swooping to the ground to catch an insect. I believe it fits for a Gray Flycatcher and hoping someone here can confirm.  The other bird I think is a Vesper Sparrow, but just wanted confirmation.

Savannah for me- the front view in particular looks wrong for Vesper, with yellowish tones and a rich, dark brown malar and contrasty head stripes. Plus, I think we'd be able to see white outer rectrices
