Alder Flycatcher

At 9:45 AM I pished-in a probable Alder Flycatcher from the Mulberry Trees Area - more than likely the same bird seen last week and identified by some as an Alder. Today, this bird came in and called 47 times. It sounded like a pit/whit call and sounded, too, like the beginning of the call I heard back at my vehicle afterwards, when I played the Alder Flycatcher call-note on my I-pod. Thus, ruling out Willow Flycatcher and Acadian.

No photos of it today, but it looked like the bird I previously photographed and described last week. Same place. Same bird, I'm sure.

I will prepare notes and send to FOSRC for a decision.
