nice find!
A reminder to send in a write-up to the WBRC when you have a chance -- Black-and-white Warbler is still a review species in the state [and one I'm dreaming of someday finally seeing here!] --
You can use the form at: http://wos.org/rarebird_exported/rarebird/rarebird.html
Or just write your own write-up using that as a template perhaps. Obviously, photos are a great bonus, but a description works if not.

Here's to more fun May birding!

It was working over the branches and trunks of some alders about 50 feet from the trail. It had very crisp black and white streaks on its head and back. The white supercilium extended from the bill and the black auriculars and facial pattern were quite striking. It was first seen about 12:45 and I watched it for much of 10 minutes, before I had to leave. I came back again about 1:40 and refound the bird. I got glimpses for about 10 minutes and then didn't see it again. The bird was seen on the right side of the trail to the beach, just past the large stone that is the 2 mile marker. The two miles must be from Ilwaco, since the spot was shorter than a five minute walk from the parking lot.
