Alder Flycatcher?

Recommended Posts

Flycatchers are so tough. I’d say either Least, Willow or, like you say, Alder flycatcher. But they’re nearly identical so hard to tell. Did you hear it make any calls/song? Sometimes that can help separate the two...

Really nice shots by the way!

Thanks Winter,

A birder next to me said he recognized the song as an Alder.

I was in the same place this morning, talking to three women who were birding. I mentioned the sighting to them and one played the call of an Alder using a smartphone app. There was an immediate answer from the trees.
