Description of the Bird
My observations of the bird were relatively brief. I heard it singing vigorously ('Che bek' call, repeated every 2-3 seconds), and that is what drew my attention to it. I walked up towards it, and saw enough to confirm that it was an empid. I did not see enough visual evidence to distinguish it from other empids.
Similar Species Discussion
I used voice (song) as the only way of separating this bird from similar species.
My memory of their song, based on past experience.
I have seen about a dozen Least Flycatchers in Colorado in Spring, with a few of them singing. Outside Colorado, my primary experience was in Saskatchewan, where they were singing on territory.
For other western empids, I have seen and heard them on territory multiple times, My experience with eastern empids (Acadian, Yellow-bellied) is much more limited.
