Help with ID's


Recommended Posts

I was going back through older pictures.. I had the first bird identified as a least flycatcher, but now I'm not certain.. Is the second picture a least flycatcher? It looks better for one to me, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Both were taken in Essex County in August of 20201814897704_Leastflycatcher-HilltopReservationNJ.thumb.JPG.47d6c9613ab8ff3956aa91bb8778eac7.JPG

Isn't Traill's a better fit for the second bird?

I’m having a hard time seeing it as one. We can’t see the primary projection, which would definitely settle it. But the eye ring is complete, the wing bars are strong, and overall coloration could fit both. GISS is still Least for me. @sbruenjes do you have any other photos, possibly ones that show the wingtips?
