Help ID This Bird

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Anthony747, Sep 24, 2005.

  1. Does this little guy look familiar to anyone? I photographed him today in central New Jersey USA. I looked him up in my Kaufman birds of North America and it almost looks like a crested flycatcher but I’m not sure.

    Thanks for any help.

    For mine, I'd go with Eastern Phoebe, but am most definite in being absolutely certain that I'm not sure of that ID. The grey from the shoulder to the chest seems suggestive of Eastern Phoebe. However, I'm most certainly not an expert so if someone knows better then I'd happily concede. :)

  3. Thanks Neil!

  4. I expect Neil is correct. One other possibility is the Gray Kingbird.
