Description of the Bird
Heard the Pip/Peep of an ALFL. Pished bird in, lighting not great. Bird had low, rounded crown that I associate with ALFL, a smallish bill for a "Traill's" Flycatcher, somewhat stout appearance (that I also assoicate with ALFL; don't have better way of describing), and long primary extension. Could not assess back color well. Narrow complete eyering. Wingbars present, seemed bold, but hard to assess contrast accurately in light. Same with tertial edges. Watched/heard bird for at least 2 minutes.
Similar Species Discussion
WIFL -- call not whit of this species nor various odd harder calls produced by some w WIFLs (which should have shorter primaries)
HAFL -- sounds somewhat similar but smaller billed, blockier head, smaller tail
Moderate with ALFL, extensive with WIFL and HAFL
