Willow Flycatcher

The Willow Flycatcher (Scientific name - Empidonax traillii) is a small fairly drab looking flycatcher found usually in wet bushy areas. They range across the entire United States and up into the more southern parts of Canada. They migrate south into Central and South America. They have a brownish back with white bars on the wings with white underparts. In less mature birds the underparts may display a yellowish wash. They are very close in appearance to the Alder Flycatcher.  Photo taken at Rolley Lake Provincial Park, Mission, British Columbia in July 2015.
