Unaccepted Records

One in fresh fall plumage (2007-68) on 20 December 2007, Bossier: south Bossier City, Red River NWR, at headquarters unit. Although most Members believed that this flycatcher may have been a member of the Western Flycatcher complex, there were no diagnostic characters provided even for “Western complex.” There are a few accepted records (no accepted sight records) for the state, but none from northern Louisiana.
