To follow up on Dave's email - theAlder flycatcher (continued to look, and later sound,like one) was difficult to refind but was eventually seen by many local birders this afternoon, after Ifirst foundit around noon. Satisfyingly, we heard Alder-sounding
pip calls from the bushes it was in several times this afternoon, though I don't think anyone observed it calling. Photosdeserve further study of course, but I think the initial ID was correct.
It was seenmostly along apatch of lakeshore,and in the riparian between the lake and the wooden bridge.
I will upload photos on myeBird list tomorrow morning, and Dave Compton also had photos.

Kristie Nelson found a possible Alder Flycatcher at Lake Los Carneros this afternoon, along the edge of the lake between the boardwalk and the northeast corner. This is a challenging ID, and Jon Dunn, Nick Lethaby, Tom Wurster, and others are
here trying to establish the ID of the bird in question. At least one Willow and a Pac-slope are also here.
