Thanks,

The peaked head should also have given me a clue.

Just so you know, trails flycatcher isn’t an actual species. Two species, willow flycatcher and alder flycatcher are nearly identical. When you can’t tell them apart, it’s a traills.

It USED to be a species, but was split. So, we used Traill’s to denominate that a bird is either an Alder or a Willow.
