    Comments: Continuing bird. Steady "whit" call for about 3 minutes starting at 6:48 am. This was about 50 feet east of the gate on the north side of the road, in low, dense bushes. Three of us heard it call again for about a minute around 7:05 am, again in low, dense cover. We were no more than 20 feet from the bird at this point. It had moved about 100 feet further east, very near the palm tree that is right next to the north side of the road. A few seconds after it stopped calling, we saw an empid pop up from the area where we heard the calls, and two of us got photos of it. We saw a Willow/Alder type empid with a slight eyering, two bold off-white wingbars, broad tail, grayish olive on back, pale gray-white breast, white upper belly and yellowish-white lower belly. About 1/2 hour later, we saw an empid fly up from the bushes and onto a tree branch about 20 feet up. It gave one "whit" call right as it landed on the branch. About an hour later, one of the people there played a couple seconds of Willow Flycatcher calls from their phone. The bird immediately popped up from the bushes and perched for a few seconds. I have photos but I can't say with 100% certainty that they are of the same bird that I heard calling. I believe there were at least two empids present.

  21. Empidonax sp.

    Comments: Sounded like a soft Alder "pip." Nothing like the Willow, which gave a sharper "whit" call a number of times. Unfortunately, this call was about 150 feet away when I heard it and I couldn't be certain enough to count it.
