I was talking about the flycatchers yesterday, but I didn't take pics of the wings. Above you can see both Acadian and Least Flycatcher. These Empidonax flycatcher have a fully grown p10 (or p1 the other way around) unlike many other bird species. As you can see above the Acadian has no emargination on the upper side of the 6th primary. The Least however, has got a small (you have to look precisely!) emargination on p6, visible in the above picture.

Currently it is too hot outside to watch birds, they won't be active. Maybe the birds will get active tonight when it cools down a little. At the visitor's centre more to the south there is a nice butterly garden. As there are a lot of Monarch's and Swallowtail's around I might take a look there later.
