White-throated Flycatcher in Amador, a report by Venicio Wilson

On September 5, while birding with Diego Postigo and his 6 year old son Carlos, I saw an Empidonax with relatively long bill, whitish lores, pale yellow belly and a totally white throat and upper chest.
Bird was moving constanly. Did not heard it call. I send this pictures to Ito (Genover) Santamaria and he agrees that the bird is a White-throated Flycatcher. The bird was spoted near the 2nd balcony on the walkway from the Yacht Club to Biomuseo.

Venicio, ¿porqué no será esto un Traill's Flycatcher (es decir Willow o Alder Flycatchers)? Tiene plumaje fresco (no desgastado), y en plumaje fresco, White-throated tiene un anillo ocular más notable. Además White-throated tiende de perchar en otro tipo de vegetación. He visto varios White-throated y muchos Empidonax de tipo Traill's, y me parece típico de Traill's. En la fecha mencionado, especialmente Alder Flycatcher debe estar pasando en buenos números. Saludos cordiales!
