    Comments: Early AM I arrived at the oasis. Mac told me there was a flycatcher that the Ash-throateds had been harassing for several days now. He showed me photos. While Nutting's came to mind, I discounted that as not an option. I also saw the ATFLs harassing the bird.

    Hours later when I went to the oasis from lunch and a nap I heard a sharp, unfamiliar bird call note, almost like a Ladder-backed Woodpecker scolding call, but positively not a LBWO.

    Lee Hoy arrived and was visiting with someone at the viewing blind so I interrupted and brought it to his attention. Together we walked toward where the sound was coming from. We saw the ATFLs harassing the flycatcher. The latter continued its harsh call. Lee got a couple of poor photos he said. We lost sight of the bird as it left the vicinity. When Lee played a recording of a Nutting's, he was quite certain that was the call we heard. I know it wasn't an ATFL vocalization. I'm very familiar with them as they nest here every year.

    To hear exactly what it sounded like to me, go to this link https://www.xeno-canto.org/species/Myiarchus-nuttingi?view=3
    Then listen to recording number XC302599. On my computer it's the 3rd one. It kept repeating that call at short intervals.
