Despite all the excited chatter today about a possible first state record
Gray Flycatcher, we should remember that at this point it remains an
Empidonax sp, pending relocation or perhaps the results of a rigorous
appraisal of the photos. Congratulations to Lea Shaw for taking them. They
will be submitted to observers with strong experience with Gray and the
very similar Dusky Flycatcher for comment. There have been plenty of
occasions where what seemed a likely ID of a specific Empid has turned in
another direction under careful scrutiny.
