Hi everyone - I am fairly certain this is an Arcadian902171114_AcadianFlycatcher1.thumb.JPG.f6c8816de82858904865ce2437973451.JPG flycatcher.  Though the eye ring is not very prominent, so it may be a Willow Flycatcher. 

 

Location: Northern Illinois

Habitat: mixed deciduous forest with pond and bogs near by. 

Date: June 10

Agree with Great Crested Flycatcher.  Empids have smaller bills and they lack the bright yellow belly with the gray breast and throat, and the brown in the wings.

Oh for goodness sake!  I thought I was going to be right about this one.  These birds seem tougher than sparrows! 🙂

 

Thank you all, for the good info!
