Went down to Shoreline Park this morning at around 9am to try to see the recently reported Leucistic Flycatcher. I was surprised that we were able to see it relatively quickly despite it being a small bird flying around a large area - it was still quite flighty but I managed to get some record shots of this little guy!

What kind of flycatcher has it been determined to be? Willow?

Nobody is 100% sure at this point since it has not vocalized yet but it is very possible a willow.
