We have now determined that the bird in the abbreviated report below claimed as a JUVENILE Grey-streaked Flycatcher was misidentified. It was a juvenile DARK-SIDED FLYCATCHER. Our group pondered on the ID in the field and have now found five characters which give us the confidence to make this claim. As the three leaders of our group are away again from tomorrow we cannot at this time elaborate on this decision. For a series of photographs see

Please note that we have no doubts regarding the adult Grey-streaked Flycatcher so both species were there!
