Olive-sided Flycatcher, 7/29/09, Beaver Creek campground, Madison Valley, MT

The Olive-sided Flycatcher, known for its yellow vest and its "quick, three beers!" song, is usually seen at the top of a tall tree. This one, in the Madison Valley just west of Yellowstone Park, was the only one I've been able to photograph at anything near eye level.
