Back on Dec. 13 Willie Sekula found an interesting "western" type Empidonx at Choke Canyon Lake's Calliham Unit. Martin Reid refound the same bird on Jan 1 and realized the "whit" call it was making was all wrong for a "western" flycatcher and seriously considered the possibility that it was a Pine Flycatcher. Pine Flycatcher is an Empidonax native to mountains of Mexico and has never been recorded in the United States. Consultation with experienced birders has so far upheld the identification. I got to see this tentative Pine Flycatcher on Jan 3. Here are some poor pics.
