contopus (from kontos, short, and pous, foot) borealis (northern)

My wife and I spotted an Olive-sided Flycatcher on the top of a tall, dead birch trunk in a horse corral. It flew to the top of a dead birch near a barn, then off out of sight. I next saw it in the top of a birch in front of the barn with a large dragonfly in its bill. It swallowed the dragonfly with difficulty, looked around for a while, then took off over the nearby woods.
I didn’t hear it sing, but I did see the white tufts below its wings. It was larger than an empidonax, with a dark gray/green back and head, and a large bill. It had a white throat and a smeary gray chest with a white streak down the center.
