Crumby Pics of Possible Pewee


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to ID this bird from the photos shot at long distance? It was perching on the very top of large trees yesterday in Austin, TX.  It didn't act like the local Eastern Phoebes which seem to hang out on on lower perches, so I guess it was something migrating through.  Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, and the lack of white rump patch which probably would have been visible, had this been Olive-sided, in pic 3.

Actually that’s not true. The white rump patch isn’t always visible and it’s absence is not enough to rule out OSFL. This bird looks structurally better for OSFL IMO, especially in picture 3. Olive-sided have large heads and short tails. Definitely can’t be ruled out from these photos.

I'm not entirely sure...it could be, though.
