An Empid for discussion.

Not a great photo, but not bad for handheld at 32x digital zoom.

I am interested to know what you think about identifying this Empid.

All comments welcome.

This bird is at Fields in Southeast Oregon. Habitat is a small wetland oasis in the high desert. As far as I know, there are no records of Empids breeding at Fields. Five species are common in migration.

Hammond's
Dusky
Gray
Willow
Western (presumably mostly Cordilleran types here)

Least Flycatcher has been recorded here several times, along with dozens other species of Eastern vagrants.
