[IBLE] Gray Flycatcher in Moscow

It was another very busy morning of migration in the University of Idaho
Arboretum and Botanical Gardens in Moscow. The best bird was my first GRAY
FLYCATCHER for North Idaho, foraging in the dry White and Ponderosa Pine
grove on the slope southwest of the lower pond.

Other migrants included:
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1
VAUX’S SWIFT 1-fairly late
Dusky Flycatcher 2-3
Empidonax sp. 1
Cassin’s Vireo 1
Warbling Vireo 3
Red-breasted Nuthatch 10-15
House Wren 2
PACIFIC WREN: probably continuing from earlier this month
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 8
Hermit Thrush 3
GRAY CATBIRD: Uncommon migrant in the Arboretum and flagged by eBird as late
Cedar Waxwing 56+
Orange-crowned Warbler 3
MacGillivray’s Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler ~30 including one Myrte or intergrade
Wilson’s Warbler 11
White-crowned Sparrow 34+
WHITE-THROATED SPARROW: continuing, possibly 2
Lincoln’s Sparrow 1
Spotted Towhee 1

The full list along with photos, videos, and full details on the rare Gray
Flyatcher are in my eBird checklist:
