It IS a Willow Flycatcher! It is, it is!

video


I have thought that it was since they first started nesting here, but only recently had the idea of going out and getting a video of him singing...plus, before the park was mowed I couldn't really do it too easily. Now, I have run him past the Facebook Bird ID Group of the World for verification and can confidently call him a Willow, as opposed to an Alder Flycatcher.

Now I am hearing ANOTHER flycatcher out there. Call very similar to an Eastern Phoebe, but softer, shorter, more clipped....any ideas?
