I raised a baby, being with the wildlife rescue, and was told I had a flycatcher. But the pictures I found didn't look quite right to being a flycatcher. So when I saw 2dCousinDave had a pic I thought I'd check it out. It turns out that this is the bird I had and it is a flycatcher. When I was encouraging it's first flights I would give my secret call and toss a piece of soggy cat food into the air. She got it every time. He, or she, has come back every year and had their own babies.
