Re: Laughlin Park Empid

Hi Jim:

The bill shape/color, eyering shape, crested look, big headed and short-tailed appearance all look good for Hammond's to me.  Hard to judge the primary projection based on photo.  

Good Birding,

After birding Lodi lake with Jim Rowoth, I stopped by Laughlin Park for a 45 minute quasi-quick birding stop. I had a Pacific-slope Flycatcher (visual and calling), A Nashville Warbler (maybe two), a Black-throated Gray, Yellow and Wilson’s Warbler. I also had a silent empid flycatcher that was well seen for about 8 minutes. Bill was smallish and all dark. It gave only occasional tail flicks. My only hesitation in calling it a Hammond's Flycatcher is that the primary projection doesn't look remarkable. Anyone to weigh in on one photo of the empid?
