    Hi Folks: Based on views of the mother bird sitting on the nest, I believed these to be Hutton’s Vireos. After closely observing the male bird, I now believe them to be Pacific Slope Flycatchers. Besides visual observance of the male (which has a crest), I also believe this because of the nest location (on a ledge), that the female only sat on the eggs while both birds are feeding the chicks, and calls that I’ve heard between the two birds–all of which are flycatcher behavior.
