Hi everyone,
I just want to clear the misunderstanding about yesterday's Sighting of 
Ash-throated Flycatcher in Shore Road Park of Brooklyn. The bird was neither 
found nor ID'ed by myself.
It was spoted initially by another birder who pointed the bird to me (we were 
birding together) and we both missed the ID.
We thought of few possibilities including Eastern or Western Kingbird and we 
decided to go with Great-crested Flycatcher althought the bird looked slightly 
and behaved differently. We didn't think of the possibility of Ash-Throated 
Flycatcher which it would've been my second ever sighting of this species and 
probably his life bird (I am not sure on that).
The credit of correct ID goes to two other birders who saw the photos and the 
video I made and sent me emails, almost semultaniously, raising the possibility 
of this species. 

I don't mind getting the credit for getting good photos and videos of the bird 
though. LOL

You can watch the video here:
And see the photos here:

Unfortunately, the bird was not seen again in the same park.
