Confirm some flycatcher ID's


Recommended Posts

I saw these birds yesterday at the Garret Mountain Reservation in Essex County, New Jersey. I believe I have a poor lighting pic of an olive-sided flycatcher, (based on what I can make out of the coloring and its position), and an eastern wood pee-wee (shape of head and lack of eye ring). Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if there are better field markers that I should be using, I would appreciate that as well!

I think there's a bunch of other good field marks for olive-sided in the first bird, namely the short tail and white patch on the flank. I think your second ID is correct as well but that needs confirmation.
