Description

This flycatcher showed up singing loud and flicking it’s tail. Chasing bugs in the tree. I thought it was an Ash-throated by the calls, “pip, pip, pipit, purreeer”. Quite large and bold. But it flicked it’s tail ALOT and has a curved tip on it’s beak like a Brown-crested Flycatcher. So, once again, I cannot seem to get a correct ID. Sibley’s guide says Ash-throated don’t flick their tails. I don’t think I will ever learn to ID these birds!
