I birded Jefferson County today. I stopped in at Lake Creek Lodge around 1:30pm. I went into the office to ask permission to bird and was given consent by the very helpful staff person. He indicated that someone was in Cabin 10 (where the Catbirds have been seen most regularly). He suggested that I stand in front of Cabin 6 and look back in the direction of Cabin 10. Within a minute one of the birds popped up. It briefly sang from the top of a wild rose on the other side of a creek and then flew towards me where it sang from a bush before it headed east down the Willow Bridge Trail. It spent some time singing from a Ponderosa Pine near the first picnic table along the trail. The bird repeated this route several times in the 45 minutes I was there. It also spent some time in the row of bushes between Cabin 10 and the creek and as I left it was near the main bridge by the office.
Everyone I encountered at the Lodge was extremely friendly. It was extremely relaxing birding in this delightful location. For a list of what I saw at Lake Creek Lodge check out this eBird list: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46599091
