flycatcher help (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I saw this flycatcher 6 weeks ago in Corpus Christy, TX. Merlin gave 3 options, Acadian, Willow or Least. it has the eyeing more like the acadian but has the white on the side of the neck more like the willow. the bill seems too long for the least. I am leaning willow. can I get some help.

I too would say Acadian

I like the way the primary spacings gradually get wider towards the wing tip - largest space being the last. On Willow the last space is equal to the penultimate.

I don't have this book, (and, given its coverage probably won't get it) but is this one of the characters there, and are there others which aren't in the Opus table I referenced?

(I think that table "keys out" this individual quite well, but that's not to say it couldn't be improved)
