    Comments: Notes from encounter:

    Appearance: Gray-headed empid, overall more gray than I am used to seeing in PSFL. Very small bill. In the light, could not see primary projection well, though the bird looked short-tailed. No visible crest of any sort, offering a kind of rounded head appearance. Eyering somewhat even, lacking the rear almond extension of PSFL. The photos reveal a vested breast. I'm not sure what to make of the primary projection in the photos. It doesn't look overly long, but it also doesn't seem overly too short. I assume angle is playing a part.

    Behavior: Observed for about 1 minute. The bird flew among branches in the understory of oak trees. When perched, the bird was rather still for an empid, only moving its tail occasionally. In this regard, it gave a very different overall impression than PSFL and other empids.

    Voice: Heard one call very faintly. Kind of a piik or peep note. It sounded somewhat similar to the calls of the LEFL that I observed last fall. I am not that confident in my interpretation of the call.
