But I also promised ...
that I would move on from my lifer list to some of my better shots. Here's one I was quite happy with - a Pacific Slope Flycatcher found in Point Lobos State Park. Or ... does the Latin name mean this is a species that's hard to identify? I know there are many similar-looking flycatchers, so do let me know if I've got this one wrong.

Perched tall and proud and a beautiful image Ann captured in some great lighting girl. Also seldom seen in the Gallery history.

Lol, great specific epithet "difficilis" but it's not just the species, all the empidonax are difficult, at least to me. Great close-up of this little gem. TFS Doc!
