that's a sweet looking bird. Does it really eat flies? I'm looking forward to exploring your blog more.

except for the shape of his head he reminds me a bit of the phoebes we get here. I enjoy watching them with the flitery of their tails.

Doesn't quite fit the description of an Olive-sided Flycatcher. The dark vest is absent and the head shape doesn't look quite right. OSFL has more of a pointed head and a larger beak. This look more like an Empidonax sp. I'm not sure what species of Empids you get in Minnesota, but it could be a Yellow-bellied or Least Flycatcher.
