Your main options here are probably Pacific-slope and Willow. Both have two wingbars (as do all Empids) and both have yellow lower mandibles. The big difference is the eye-ring-- prominent, with a teardrop at the rear for Pac-slope; pretty much no eye-ring for Willow.

Had my first empid in the yard today. We stared each other down as I dared not move.
Finally it flew into shrub so I could run in for my camera but alas it stayed hidden.
Quick study: Dark upper bill, yellow/orange lower, 2 wing bars, flicked tail methodically,
No call, olive overall.
If anyone can id please let me know. Poor Photo here:
