Taken today up in the Spring Mountains near Mt Charleston, at about 7500-8000 ft.

Lovely family unit.. any idea what they are? My best guess would be Cordilleran.

Thanks,
Maureen

My guess would be Dusky Flycatcher--all dark mandible (as far as I can tell), short primary projection, plumage characteristics--but I'll be interested to see what others have to say.

Hey Maureen, Steve (trailhiker @ OLP) here! Super takes here as per your usual. My guess would be Dusky Flycatcher too. Sibley's says it sometimes has a "mostly dark bill", which these have, and they don't seem to have a yellowish tinge to them as Cordillerans or Pac Slopes would.

Check out my Pewee posts here when you have the time. Any ideas as to whether they're Western Wood- or Greater Pewee?

Best Wishes,
Steve
