Pacific-slope Flycatcher 1

I’m embarking on a project with very narrow margins… I asked my Facebook birder friends if they could guess what I was trying to draw, but I won’t do that here. Pacific-slope Flycatchers belong to the genus Empidonax, a notoriously difficult to identify group. Differences are subtle…. size and shape of eye ring, primary projection, general shape and structure. This should be quite a ride.
