                  Confused by flycatcher identification? Geoff Williamson’s presentation will discuss what to look for, and what to listen to, when trying to put names to the summering and migrant flycatchers of Illinois. Geoff groups the various species systematically and by ID problems, both “easy” and hard. He will also address the special problems posed by rarities.

                        Geoff has given many presentations to enthusiastic ENSBC audiences in the past, and we are delighted to anticipate yet another evening with Geoff.
