Observation details

Admittedly, I got a very brief look, but the bird was clearly an empid, and appeared to be gray and rather big headed. I was carrying my scope back to my car at the time, and the bird seemed to be sitting still for a moment, so I put the scope on it and got lucky to get one cellphone photo before it flew. The photo seems to confirm my initial impression, but happy to hear other opinions. This was just a few yards from the parking area, in the sumacs and poke weed on the right side of the road between the parking area and the pond.
