Flycatcher or warbler?


Recommended Posts

Another bird confused me today in Hempstead NY. I thought it was a Blue-headed Vireo but it has eye rings without spectacles and only a very pale yellowish wash on the undersides, rather than yellow on the flanks. I also notice that the underside of the tail is white and I couldn't find a flycatcher that matches it. Is it a warbler?

I don't know about you but I've never seen one from this angle.  Every one I've ever seen has been at least several feet above my head.

The previous ones I saw were at about eye level but this one was actually higher than it might appear. I was quite a distance back so that i was shooting up at a relatively shallow angle.

Here in New Mexico they live in pinyon-juniper scrub and are very likely to be below eye level.
