I have asked local experts some flycatcher id questions, but do not want to overwhelm them and affect good will. I appreciate any help you can provide.

I know many of the Empid ids are tricky, but are straightforward and some can be reduced to certain possibilities.

I am thinking

1) Olive-sided Flycatcher
2) Yellow-bellied Flycatcher
3) Least Flycatcher
4) Eastern Pewee
5) Not sure.

Thanks.

1) An Olive-sided would have a much darker "vest". This looks like an Eastern Wood-Pewee.
2) OK with Yellow-bellied.
3) OK with Least.
4) Not dark enough for a Pewee. Wish we could see the primary projection - that would help. Looks like a Willow / Alder with the minimal eye ring.
5) Looks like another Least.

Well this primary projection is too long for a Willow / Alder. Maybe it is a Pewee that just looks light because of the bright scene, and possibly overexposed ... ?
