    Comments: I had originally thought this bird was a Western Flycatcher as my original eBird list ID'd it. An alert eBird reviewer (Sean) though this looked very much like a Tyrannulet (weak wing bars, short primary projection, pale gray color, and short orangish beak).
    This bird was found along the North segment of Palm Lake trail between the lake and Visitor center buildings.

  17. pewee sp. (Contopus sp.)

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: Saw this bird at the preserve today (9/18) At 10:00 AM in the meadow (just east of the cow corral). I took these shots. I saw it again in another net run at 10:30 AM...it was at the top of a snag just a few feet behind the corral; wagging its tail down then up (like a BLPH).
    I posted this on AZ Birding FB for ID help. It puzzles me! This bird has a beak like a OSFL, but plumage like an Eastern Wood Pewee (dark gray and bright wing bars). As I approached it and saw only a silouette at first, I thought it may be and ATFL (it was the size of an ATFL). This does no look like the many WEWPs I have seen this year, all of which have gray (sometimes mixed with a bit of lemony yellow). This bird has a medium gray back and dark gray (black) primaries and tail. The WEWPs I have seen have very wispy/faint wing bars; this bird had bright white wing bars. Likewise the beak is not like the WEWPs I have seen. This bird's beak is broad/wide and is 1/2 way black on underside. The head had a slight hint of brown. This bird has an eye ring.

    Comments: Seen in 'meadow' near fence surrounding septic tank at 12:30 PM. Bird was on the ground hopping (like a HOSP). Then it laid low. I approach with camera, got this poor shot, it flew north to woodpile at north end of meadow, with a few flight chirps.
