Least Flycatcher - Parker River NWR - Oct. 18, 2011

Least Flycatcher is the general consensus on this late empidonax flycatcher that's currently calling lot #1 home. Thanks for the help with the id to all that responded from MassBird!

The flycatcher found by Jonathan Center across from parking lot #1 on the Parker River NWR on Sunday, October 16, 2011 was seen again this morning hunting from low perches along the road in the same general area. The low light, overcast & early, made for tough conditions for photos at 700mm but here's a few.

A brief video (included only for the call) taken just after dawn when the flycatcher was 
calling continuously, it was distant so turn your speakers up.
