Description of the Bird
We observed the empidonax flycatcher at DePoorter Lake near Julesburg. As we walked down the fenceline, the bird moved along ahead of us and perched repeatedly on the fence. Some of the characteristics we observed were olive-colored back; grayish face; narrow, complete eyering; thick, longish bill; and longish primary extension. The bird called "peep" twice, reminiscent of a single Olive-sided Flycatcher call note (as described by Sibley).
Similar Species Discussion
Alder, Willow, and Acadian Flycatchers are empids with large bills and long primaries. The bird was identified as Alder by the "peep" call.
Sibley Guide to Birds
Experience observing empids since 2012. Experience with Alder Flycatcher starting in May 2015, when several were observed.
