Empid flycatcher, Northern Virginia, October 6, 2022 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi, I took this picture yesterday (October 6, 2022) in Northern Virginia.

It is near the location where I saw this one (Empid flycatcher, Northern Virginia, September 19, 2022) which was confirmed as Least Flycatcher.

But this appears to be a different individual (a little more bedraggled) and the bi-colored bill makes me think Acadian.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance,

I think most empids have bi-colored bill. Acadian should have olive upper parts.
I’ve never seen an Acadian, unfortunately.

My guess is another Least Flycatcher, but I’m no flycatcher expert.
