A couple of flycatchers, northern Virginia, Sept. 20, 2020 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi, I took these this morning (Sept. 20, 2020) in Fairfax County, Virginia, US.

I am thinking:
1. Least flycatcher (prominent eye-ring, short primary projection)
2. Acadian Flycatcher

What do you think?

Thanks in advance,

I would lean slightly towards Least for the first photo. They often show that crescent shape on the back part of the eye ring, a feature I have not seen in Willow/Alder. Primary projection also looks right.

I agree with Birdmeister on the second photo: Eastern Wood-Pewee.
