  OSFL-6820.jpg - Olive-sided Flycatcher ( Contopus cooperi ) atop distant conifer near four corners, Oakland, CA on May 12, 2013. Photo by Kay Loughman.  This is a typical view, as the bird prefers to perch at the very top of tall trees.  The voice is loud and penetrating.  More than any other in recent years, this spring I've heard the distinctive call, sometimes described as "quick, three beers;" or more accurately "what peeves you?"
