    Mark,   Wild or not, your Gray Silky-Flycatcher looks like a Phainopepla. If I m not mistaken, the latter is more likely in Santa Ynez.   Dave Compton Santa

      All:

      I was at private residence in Santa Ynez this afternoon and I heard a whit call.  I thought it sort of sounded like a Willow Flycatcher.  I went to look for the bird making the call and it was a male Phainopepla.  Then another bird flew in the tree.  I thought it was a female Phainopeple but it had a yellow belly! It was a Gray Silky-flycatcher.  Photos:

      This bird is on the supplemental list for the state.  The first California record was from Ventura in 1976.  This is a bird that is kept in cages in Mexico.  Still a cool looking bird to see flycatching over a Santa Ynez street.  The Committee says that all escapes of this species should be reported if they are also possible wild birds? Huh?
