The flycatcher was there this morning around 10am. It was on one of the high tension wires between the 2 towers, a good way off. Didn't have a scope, but there is no mistaking this bird. Never saw it fly. We turned the car around to leave and when we looked again it was gone.
Also saw some Barn Swallows and a male Blue Grosbeak.
One note, the power cut is less than half a mile down the road. We passed it, and there just so happens to be another, smaller, dirt turn-off at exactly half a mile. We parked there for a while, but there was no power cut. But on our way back found the right spot and immediately saw the bird once parked.
