      It's OK. I had to do a lot of post processing on the photos. . .it's probably *not* your monitor, in other words.
      The sun glared on his feathers, and no matter how much I adjusted hue, saturation, shadows and highlights to compensate post-processing, it didn't come out exactly right. It's easier for me to shoot photos of birds when they aren't so darned skittish :)
      Example: a raven in MacKerricher State Park has become my 'friend' and sang ravensong at me. . .caught it on video. . .sure made me laugh.
      Onwards and upwards on eagle's wings,

      Taking a look at other photos the bird is indeed  an Ash-throated Flycatcher.  I think I need to play around with the coloration controls on my monitor as this isn't the first time color appeared off on it compared to others monitors. The secondaries looked washed on my monitor.  The additional photos do show it to be an Ash-throated Flycatcher, sorry to cause the confusion.  The additional photos show all the field marks that I stated ruled out Ash-throated Flycatcher in my last post.  I'm going to stop trying to id bird photos on the internet till I look at them on another computer.  A good lesson on iding single bird photos on monitors that have different settings.
