Alder Flycatcher Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite:  I've seen these guys plenty of times.  I'm sure I have!  But alas, they are one of the famed "Empidonax" flycatchers, a group of small flycatchers that all look very similar to each other. I have photos of Empidonax flycatchers on my hard drive that will likely forever just be labeled "miscellaneous Empidonax flycatcher", because I'm not sure what species they are. The only reason I know this is an Alder Flycatcher? He was singing his heart out right before I found him. Photos below are taken in May of 2005 at Lake Thompson, in Kingsbury County, South Dakota.
