Thanks to Dr. John Abbott for the ID to genus level from photos. Presume the large one is a female. The small one was following the large one and grabbing at and harassing it constantly.

Description

gcwarbler called me this morning to say that a local observer found and photographed a Dusky-capped Flycatcher at Pedernales Falls State Park. This would be the first record for this part of Texas and the species is rare anywhere in the state. The original observer obtained some excellent images of the bird which are posted along with his eBird report at:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S20335734
gcwarbler and I got to the site of the observation about 10:30 AM and within about 3 minutes we started hearing the distinctive species-specific downward, mournful whistled call notes of this species. Both of us have considerable experience with the species from central America, Mexico, SE Arizona and west Texas. Over an hour we heard the bird 10-15 times but could never see it. Finally it popped into view and remained in view for about 3-4 minutes in a mesquite tree overhead. It was calling constantly while in view. I was taking photos in bad lighting, almost looking at the sun, but the images should be identifiable. Vincent's photos from yesterday (link above) are much better, however. Anyway, a nice bird for these parts!

similar to Entypus unifasciatus, but I am not sure if it is that species or whether this can be ID'd from photos.
