Some form of Flycatcher Jody, great image. Without knowing where you photographed the bird, the best I can hazard is that it is some form of flycatcher. You probably already knew this, so I'm not real helpful...If you are out west, it could be either a Pacific-slope flycatcher or a Cordilleran flycatcher. Anyhow, great picture. Regards, Chris

Very nice. Best regards Chris

I think this could be a, Imm - white eyed vireo by the markings on the feather

Kim Allsebrook
Perfection.... well done... Kim :o)

Beautiful shot. If you're east of the Rockies it is likely one of five Empidonax Flycatchers that are all so close in appearance they are best distingushed at breeding time by voice, habitat, and nest. (From Peterson's field guide, I have some I've been trying to id) Love the detail in this shot.

Jose Pires
Amazing how you managed the perfect focus!

Louis Young
Great DOF. Nice background colors in contrast with the bird. Excellent shot! BRAVO!

Pulok Pattanayak
Superb DOF. Regards...

Bird ID? As a couple of folks have said, this is an Empidonax flycatcher. Can you tell us where you took the photo? My guess is Least Flycatcher, if it was taken in the eastern U.S. But it's only a guess.

Juan Carlos Vindas
This is definitely an Empidonax sp. To me this guy looks like a E. albigularis, but as mentioned above, a good key in distinguishing among them is their voice, call, habitat etc.

Jody Melanson
Don't know the ID Anyone know what species of bird this is? Thanks!
