Bill Mitchell found the Nashville Warbler and we only got to hear the Chat but with one in our group getting to see it. We saw the underside of the Dusky Flycatcher's bill, it showed approximately 1/3 medium dark toward the tip blending into a pale base with the bill shape wider than the more narrow Gray Flycatcher bill. Our bird wasn't dropping its tail slowly as in a gray and the eye ring was more almond shaped than the grays. The primary extension was medium & not long as in a Hammond's Flycatcher. Our bird was silent & showed more olive than we have been seeing on the many Gray Flycatchers passing through recently.
