The Alder Flycatcher found by Gary Bletsch (and Mike Nelson) at Bacon Creek Road just off SR 20 continues as of 3:15 today.  Gary's directions are fantastic.  Going east on SR 20, turn right onto Bacon Creek Road.  In less than 100 yards park just before the yellow gate.  Walk 50 uards down the gravel road to the right.  Gary left a pink ribbon on a stump there.  
The Alder FC favors the shrubs and small trees in that immediate area but ranges all the way back to and across Bacon Creek Road but I never saw it cross SR 20.
It is very active and gives what Gary descibed as "wee buhr" two note call frequently.  It is similar to but very different from the burrier and differently accented "fitz bew" of the Willow FC.  (There was one across SR 20).
I heard it eithin 1 minute of arriving and saw it several times, but it took 20 minutes to get a photo.
Thanks Gary
