High Sierra Birds. Fly Catcher (?)  

Observing and attempting to identify High Sierra Birds.

Lunch Meadow, Stanislaus National Forest
Route of the Tahoe to Yosemite Trail from Kennedy Meadows to Tuolumne Meadows.

September 2, 2010

9000 feet of elevation

I am thinking this is some kind of Flycatcher. Anyone have a more confident identification?

I was sitting under the thin shade at the 9000 foot post in Upper Luch Meadow when this grey dude flew up. There are other trees around, but he came over to look me over a bit.

I am not sure what kind of bird this is, so please inform me if you do.
