Poss. Flycatcher

Recommended Posts

This was Saturday, 25 May 19, here in San Antonio at Friedrich Wilderness Park early morning. Apologize for the poor pics, but he was kind of touch to get a line on for a clear shot with good lighting. I lightened the picture up as much as I could. I noticed some yellow on the underside, and a rufus bar on the wings when I zoomed in the pic. He also seems to have a heavy bill.

Researching a little further, and based on Birding Duo's input, I think I can safely say it is one of three: either a Great Crested, Brown Crested or Ash-throated Flycatcher. What it shows in Merlin for territory, best bets are either Great Crested or Ash-throated. I have seen a Great Crested Flycatcher recently, but not at this location. This location is heavily wooded within somewhat of a canyon setting. Juniper trees and other trees as well.
