Daniel Fitzgerald

All Empidonax Flycatchers in our area have light eye-rings and two pale wing bars.  Distinguishing features are subtle and include size, shape and coloring of the bill.  This species is less yellowish than the Pacific-Slope Flycatcher with a shorter, thinner, darker bill and a more tear drop shaped eye ring.
