Dusky Flycatcher

Empid with distinct eye ring, medium width bill that is light colored at base, yellowish belly, dark breast, flicking long tail up regularly. Separated from HAFL by broader light lower mandible, from GRFL by tail flicking behavior, from WIFL by bold eye ring, and from LEFL by shape of head and long tail.

Say's Phoebe
1
Myiarchus sp.

This bird came out of nowhere and attacked the DUFL. It was about 10-20% larger than the
DUFL, had a fairly bright yellow belly, a darkish breast, and a relatively long but thin bill. No eye ring or other facial marks. Head darker than breast. No noticeable rufous on tail or wings. At one point it gave a single plaintive "wheere" call. All too far away and too fast for any photos. I am thinking Dusky-capped Flycatcher, but realizing the extreme rarity I am not entering it as that species. It was in the woods upstream of the dam.
