Re: RFI "Western" Flycatchers in the Warners
- Hi Martin,
For some information on WEFLs in the Warners you can search the Birdchat
archives for some correspondence on the topic from several years ago. A
little dated, but a starting point.
The archives are located at:
There you can search under "cordilleran" and/or under my name (Jennifer
Matkin) to find discussion on the subject. My trip report re Lava Beds
and a series of postings called "Cordilleran Redux" include information
on where I saw and did not see Western Flycatchers in that area. The
region is certainly worth exploring in any event.
<<I'm considering spending a few days in the Warner Mountains some time
next few weeks. My main interest would be listening to the "Western"
Flycatchers there, which, as I understand it, are Cordilleran by
measurement, but which give calls suggestive of Pacific-Slope (as well
calls of Cordilleran).
Does anyone have any suggestions for locations/hikes where I would be
likely to encounter these critters? I have never spent any time in the
Warners despite having driven past them a number of times.
(Any other information -- nice hikes, camping areas, etc. -- would be
welcome also, although I can search for that information elsewhere.)
Also, is the presumption that ALL of the summer resident "Western"
Flycatchers up there are Cordilleran or that some birds (perhaps those
the western side) are assumed to be P.S. Flycatchers?
