Mystery Empidonax Flycatchers
from Marymoor Park, Redmond, King County, Washington, 5/14/2009

We had, not one, but two mystery empidonax flycatchers at Marymoor on 5/14, as well as one that was very clearly a Pacific-slope.

Sorry that the photos are so bad - the day was very dark, cloudy, and drizzly - NOT the best weather.  Ollie Oliver's photos are, as usual, better than mine.

All empids were entirely silent.

If anyone can help to shed light on these, please email me at BirdMarymoor@frontier.com, and I'll post the comments.
