Rather grey, had back to me and could not make out if there was an eye ring or not. At first thought it was a Willow because of the "whit" call. Calls were close together and seemed a bit off. Thought of what else might be passing through. Played the call for a Hammond's. No! Then tried DUSKY. Yes! I played the call by my ear and it called at the same time. A match. Tried to walk to a better vantage point but just then children came to the playground and it flew out of sight into the Par 3.

These two males were preening and the red showed every now and then. Once they were done they joined a starling flock on the Par 3. They made no sounds. The photos were taken at a distance so as not to disturb the birds and then cropped way down. Not great quality.

Is this one also a Red-winged female? She seemed so much darker than the other I saw. Both photos of same bird.
