   Alder Flycatcher (Empidonax alnorum) - ALFL (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records, range map
)

  1. Re: [CALBIRDS] Re: [sbcobirding] Possible Alder Flycatcher LINK
    DATE: Sep 30, 2018, 19 day(s) ago
    Greetings Calbirders,
    
    To follow up on Dave's email - theAlder flycatcher (continued to look, and later sound,like one) was difficult to refind but was eventually seen by many local birders this afternoon, after Ifirst foundit around noon. Satisfyingly, we heard Alder-sounding
    pip calls from the bushes it was in several times this afternoon, though I don't think anyone observed it calling. Photosdeserve further study of course, but I think the initial ID was correct.
    
    It was seenmostly along apatch of lakeshore,and in the riparian between the lake and the wooden bridge.
    
    I will upload photos on myeBird list tomorrow morning, and Dave Compton also had photos.

  7. Fwd: [SFBirds] Alder Flycatcher LINK
    DATE: Jun 4, 2013 @ 10:39pm, 5 year(s) ago
    Hello all. Brian Fitch reported a singing, calling ALDER FLYCATCHER in Golden
    Gate Park in San Francisco this morning. I figured a potential seventh state
    record would be of interest to the California birding community at large,
    despite of the lack of follow-up reports so far.
    
    For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Bercut Equitation Field is in the
    southwest portion of Golden Gate Park, relatively easily accessed from Lincoln
    Blvd. Lat/Long is 37.766462, 122.501293. Simply paste that into Google Maps, and
    you should find the right spot.
    
    Good birding,
    
    Matt Brady

    I received a phone call this morning that yesterday's reported ALDER
    FLYCATCHER in Siskiyou County is actually has been re-identified as an
    EASTERN WOOD PEWEE!
    I just heard the recording and agree, and it was confirmed by Guy McCaskie
    at the site.
    I am sorry for anyone making the long trek from my Alder posting, I should
    have gotten more confirmation.
    Please enjoy the pewee!
