Thanks Al, I was suprised about the size of the ash-throat, was much bigger than the other 2 flycatchers.

Excellent IQ on all these, Jo. That Ash-Throated Flycatcher is a real looker!

I've seen them before, Jo, but seeing them together in this set is great. These are such fantastic images. They really are.
