Just as a potential heads-up, since no reports appeared forthcoming to this list for Tuesday, an anonymouse eBird report, with photo, was submitted with Hammond’s Flycatcher listed as showing in the Central Park (Manhattan, N.Y. City) Ramble, specifically “south of Maintenance Field” and for the before-noon hour, on Tuesday, 5th December, 2017.
This bird is still being sought by multiple birders, and it may be presumed to be a 'desired-to-see' bird for essentially as long as it remains. In addition a male Wilson’s Warbler has been seen again (Tues., 5th) in the vicinity with that Empidonax flycatcher, and it is possible that the presence of the Wilson’s Warbler is (as observed on multiple days & varied locations within the Ramble) or at least may be an indicator for the potential presence of the Empidoax hammondii, perhaps loosely associating in their feeding forays. It may also be somewhat useful to pay closer attention should any insectivorous bird be noted in searching for the flycatcher, kinglets being an example of birds to stay aware of, in that their presence could again be an indicator for the possibility of rarer winter insectivores about. good further-flyctacher luck, if seeking.
