First noticed an Empid. sp. flycatching just off the trail and it immediately struck me as brightly colored overall, so I thought YBFL. The bird had a yellow chin/ throat extending through the underparts, greenish appearance to the upperparts, a bold eyering, small bill with a pinkish/yellowish lower mandible. Watched it forage for ~5 minutes where it let out two very soft tu-wee calls as well. This was one of the more boldly colored YBFL's I've encountered (which includes 3 summers of field work with YBFL as the target sp.)
