|CAWA- hatching year male|
Making their final appearance in NW Ohio for the year
Identifying flycatchers can be challenging. Here you have a small flycatcher with no eye ring, wing bars, and bi-colored beak (upper mandible is dark and lower is light, usually yellow).
|EAWP: Note buffy-colored wing bars|
Other birds of note for the week:
|Cedar Waxwing (CEDW): Male has the black throat|
|CONW: Note the pointed tail (retrices) assisting in the aging of this bird as HY|
|CONW: because you cannot get enough good looks at this bird!|
