Riparian woods, Española, N.M., this morning.

1. i6ltenz.jpg

The teardrop-shaped eye-ring makes me think it's a Cordilleran, but I think it's one of the two that chased each other right near me, making low buzzes, which I haven't heard from Cordilleran.

2.  Confirm Gray Catbird?  In a willow thicket next to the Rio Grande.


3. Very close to me, as you might guess.  It sounded as if it was no higher than my head.  Maybe an alarm call?


4. In a field or shade trees or in a hobby farm fairly far from the river.  Maybe a domestic bird?

I agree with Gray Catbird for #2.

Thanks!  They're not very common around here.

how about the squawking and the flycacher

Dan Lane at xeno-canto said 3 was a Cooper's Hawk and 4 was a Helmeted Guineafowl (which they have on that farm).  Still interested in the flycatcher, but that doesn't mean it's identifiable (and sorry, I didn't mean for it to come out so big).
