Hope you are having a good shore bird trip. Didn't see many birders in pk so I thought I'd send you our list from today. A nice early fall species list just covering lull water and ravine in a surprisingly empty prospect park. Ok, back to packing now we move on Thursday.

Yellow-bellied Flycatcher  1     In trees on music island. Compact stature and yellow wash on belly and throat caught our eye. Eyering, low contrast between throat and head, dusky breast and yellow belly. Highly contrasting wing bars against dark back and wings. Had a round head not broader flatter head of least. We watched bird for a good length of time from all angles to make sure color was not a trick of light. A near by trails flycatcher a little lower down looked muck whiter on breast and throat In same lighting conditions. The comparison to trails empid also emphasized the smaller more compact build of bird.
