All that is to say, that I am pretty sure these are Pacific-slope
flycatchers. You will notice that this bird looks different in
different poses, but all were taken within a half hour in my yard on
the same day (in September.) Many birds, including flycatchers, grow
less distinctly marked as the summer and fall progresses.
They are not called flycatchers for nothing. They are very efficient
hunters of all small insects.
In the wild you usually see flycatchers on the end of branches, or
above you in the trees. They don't often hold still long. Which
makes them even harder to identify. See the Willow
Flycatcher for another example.
