I didn't hear this one call and I'm not sure what it is. I know these are difficult but maybe an expert may know. It was in Washington state up on Wenas Road. It's sagebrush habitat and this bird was in a riparian thicket right where the pine forest starts. If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them, otherwise, enjoy the photo. Thanks.

I'm no expert, but I think it may be a Gray Flycatcher!!

Great shot. Good luck on the ID as Empids are notoriously hard to ID from photos. A shot of the back would help some if you happen to have any.

I know it's tough. Here is a shot from the backside. Would a closeup of the beak help?

Very nice capture of this cute bird. Love the soft BG colors too! Well done.

Well with the long primary projection (wingtips), weak to non-existant eyering, vested appearance, and smudges on the under tail coverts, I'd say Western Wood Pewee.
