It was a juvenile bird (bold buffy wingbars) and did not respond to tape (I played Willow, Alder, and Acadian). I heard it call at least four times in about 30 min. The call is a "whit" note similar to Least Flycatcher, but not as short and dry. It is also similar to Brown-crested Flycatcher, but not as loud or explosive. I did 3 years of Willow Flycatcher surveys in Southern CA so I'm very familiar with this call. The bird was obviously larger than a Least Flycatcher, with longer primary projection than that species shows. The bill was also noticeably larger. Acadian Flycatcher was eliminated by this bird's whiter throat and shorter wings (and call of course). The bird showed a very thin, indistinct eyering, I only noticed it in scope views. I've heard Eastern Wood-Pewee give a whit note in migration, but this bird was obviously an Empid, showing shorter wings, much bolder wingbars, longer legs, clean undertail coverts, and different posture/behavior.
