And a first of the year Dusky Flycatcher too


I found this Dusky Flycatcher yesterday also. Unlike many empids, this one was kind enough to give it's 'whit' call 3 times--and I am glad it repeated as it's call is so soft I wasn't sure I heard it the first two times. It also shows the field marks this species with a rounded head, prominent eye ring and wing bars, grayish back with whitish throat and underparts with just a small amount of yellowish wash. SeEtta
