1
Alder Flycatcher

No photos, unfortunately. Two Trail's-type Empidonax seen together, only one of which I was comfortable calling an Alder. Both had the obvious pale wing bars and relatively short primary projections of the genus, separating them from Pewees and Phoebe. The one I was comfortable calling an Alder had a thin eye ring, rounded crown, gray head contrasting with an olive back, and slight yellow wash below. Both were feeding on some berry bushes at the edge of a marsh, typical of Alder Flycatchers during fall migration.

1
Alder/Willow Flycatcher (Traill's Flycatcher)

See notes under Alder Flycatcher. This individual was much more brown above, with a stronger yellow wash bellow and on the wing bars than the more typical Alder that it was with. I see birds like this one in the fall in Louisiana, which we usually leave unidentified.
