Hi,
Photos from September 2.
Is that possible to say for sure which one is it?
Thanks a lot.

This looks like a Great Crested Flycatcher.

Thank you, but definitely not the Great Crested.
Willow / Adler / Least ...
I think it is one from Willow/Adler pair by PP length and rather Adler than Willow :)

The eye-ring isn't particularly strong, and the primary projection isn't very long (the shadow of the primaries on the body makes the primary projection look longer than it really is), so I'm inclined towards Willow/Alder.

I would go with alder due to a distinct eye ring - in my opinion, but you may need to just say spp. An interesting note is that until the 1970s, they were considered the same.....another result of splitting, I guess.

Thank you for your opinion. I believe it Alder too but afraid I have to learn their calls and wait for Spring :)

Traill's (Willow/Alder) Flycatcher...even in hand they are sometimes hard to be sure(if they do not call) since many measurements overlap
