Empidonax sp.

Seen before dawn in willow patch at the east edge of Ponds 2 and 3. Willow Flycatcher nearby for comparison. I didn't get good looks at this bird. It was staying very low foraging on the edge and in the interior of the willows. Too dark for study, so I fired a few photos. My impression is Least Flycatcher, but it would be good to get corroboration.

Notes; molting juv. First seen in flight over Pond 3, where obvious pale rump patch was visible, but head pattern was difficult to discern. Later I found it perched on distant wires with three Barn Swallows and one Violet-green, and I attempted some digi-scopes, which are included here. The juvenile Cliff is the left-hand bird. Although terrible, you can see the pale collar and forehead here. The bird appeared to be in full juvenile plumage, with mixed black and white throat pattern.
