I thought I'd post a series of pictures of a particular empid from the refuge.

I believe this is a good candidate for CORDILLERAN FLYCATCHER. Any thoughts?

And no, I never did hear it vocalize. Must I leave this as "Western" because of the very slim possibility it's a Pacific-slope Flycatcher??? And yes, Cordilleran Flycatchers breed here in Nebraska, btw. However, this was my first ever COFL candidate for the refuge (which sits a bit south and a bit east of where this species breeds).
