Ash-throated Flycatcher (Myiarchus cinerascens) (1)
- Reported Jan 10, 2023 12:25 by Fran Taylor
- 1025 NE Fall Drive Grants Pass, Josephine, Oregon
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=42.4435816,-123.3107873&ll=42.4435816,-123.3107873

- Comments: "This EXTREMELY EARLY flycatcher was sitting on a wire over my house as I returned from shopping. Being familiar with the Ash-throated Flycatcher for over 20 years, observer recognized the silhouette quite clearly, with the raised crest and long tail. Posture was correct for the species. Color was problematic, as the sky was overcast and the observer was looking up, so the rufous of the tail was not evident, but the proportion of the tail was right. It was dark compared to the rest of the bird. The wing bars were evident.  Size was correct, although the bird looked thin. Then it called, and the soft "prrrt" whistle, like a ball-whistle, was diagnostic.
   Habitat: This neighborhood in the City of Grants Pass has mature trees -- oak, conifers (spruce, pine, cedar, Leyland Cyprus, and more) -- and mature landscaping with shrubs and large bushes. Last year in the summer, there were numerous sightings of this species in this neighborhood."
