Juvenile grosbeak

At the oasis I have quite a few juvenile hummers. It's good to know they nested successfully in spite of the drought. Below is a juvenile Blue Grosbeak.

Migrants are arriving in normal numbers. I really enjoyed seeing this male Lark Bunting in his summer plumage . Well, except for a little molting, that is. Usually they winter here and I only see them in their winter plumage, which is very drab.

I haven't identified this empidinax flycatcher yet. All help appreciated. It seems to have a longish bill and very short primary extensions, for what that's worth.

Update: Kelly Bryan thinks it looks like a Least Flycatcher based on what he can tell from the photo, so I'm going with that.
