Nice morning at Taylor's.
1 EMPI Fly----looks good for a YB Fly and that is what I am leaning toward, but would like some feedback. I attached some photos as well as one of the other flycatcher this morning.
I initially observed it along a hedge in front of the Taylor house (yellow) at 8:23. Flew over and up high into the pair of sycamores. I watched it for a few minutes and did not hear it. I could not relocate so I went onward.
As luck would have it, as I birded along the strip of sun-filled trees along the dike near the Delaware (can just make out the Delaware in the background in photos), I found it again and snapped some photos. When I refound it at around 9:30, it was in the sycamores near the River (this may be a good area to look if anyone is trying to find). Last seen flying toward pines/ brushy area just past last house on left (red). John V had an apparent YB Fly in his backyard last weekend, so could this be another late Nov YB Fly??!
Definitely not a Least, Traill's or Hammond's Fly. Never called, wash of yellow above and below on sides, full eye ring, regularly flicking wings, smallish.
Other misc stuff included: 3 Rusty Blackbird, 1 Eastern Phoebe, 2 Catbird, 8 Fox Sparrow, 7 Winter Wren (is there a better spot for W. Wren?), 3 Red-sh Hawk (an adult and 2 different immatures) and 2 C. Goldeneye
