Olive-sided Flycatcher in first basic plumage in a dead Hemlock on 11 August.


It had crisp fresh edges to the wing coverts.


Its bill was large and orange on the lower mandible when it opened its bill.


Olive-sided Flycatchers are regular fall migrants in my backyard, flycatching from the top of dead Hemlocks.
