Help with an Empid

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Found at the mouth of Florida Canyon, Pima Co., AZ.  April 28, 2019. 

It was giving a call similar to the "chi-bik" of a Least Flycatcher, but it was rougher, lower pitched, and louder.

The 'vest' made me think WWPE upon first sight, but the eye-ring, strong yellow, and short bill made me look at Empids.  The closest fit is Yellow-bellied, but range maps do not extend to AZ and there are very few eBird occurrences for AZ.

Any thoughts?

Hammond's or Dusky I believe. It's not a Yellow-bellied for sure.
