Alder Flycatcher (Empidonax alnorum) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1046)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - Identified by call, after 15 minutes of waiting. Habitat is not a clear indicator of what the species is so you really need them to call to be sure.

I worked with this little guy for some time. Flycatchers are great for remaining on a perch for a shot but if they aren't close enough it won't matter. I had to wait a while for the right position to come along.

It is always a challenge for us to ID them because we have Willow sometimes within the same area. Willow is uncommon but so close to the Alder in plumage that without a call we can't safely determine which is which. Oddly enough I was about to give up on this one. I thought it would never call.

This was probably my fourth attempt at shooting the species this year. All of the others were too far or didn't come out.I'm still working on a Willow but they are harder to find and I have the same issue with cooperation. Early and late day are best because both species call more at that time.
