Description of the Bird
The empids were seen on low perches in bushes and trees near the creek through the Ovid Woods. Each bird had long primaries, a broad and straight-sided tail, an olive-colored back, grayish wash on the breast on an otherwise whiteish underside, grayish face, complete and narrow eyering, and large bill. Each bird called "peep" many times (audio recording included with this report).
Similar Species Discussion
Willow and Acadian Flycatcher were also considered. The "peep" call and complete eyering eliminate Willow. The "peep" call eliminates Acadian.
Sibley Guide to Birds
Experience observing empids since 2012. Experience observing Alder Flycatchers in the field beginning in May 2015. Familiarity with empid calls and songs previously from listening to recordings on xeno-canto.org.
