Given the range of "brewsteri" subspecies of Willow Flycatcher as
noted by Alan, if you are interested in Willow Flycatcher in other
locations in Oregon, for comparisons, Wood River Wetlands in Klamath
County, on the east side of the Cascades, is a location where numerous
Willow Flycatchers are present, are vocal, and breed, and would be a
good place for observations on the eastside.

As far as I know brewsteri is the subspecies north of roughly Douglas
County and west of the Cascade summit. Is that what you’re looking
at? The s. side of Fern Ridge Reservoir near Eugene has a number of
breeding pairs. Access points are described in the site guide on the
East Cascades Audubon Society web site:
Royal Avenue usually has a pair or two near the gate. One
or two pairs can be found at the sw corner of Perkins Peninsula Park
where the old boardwalk went to die, just south of the swimming area.

I am a PhD student working on willow flycatcher (_Empidonax

June and first week in July and would like to know of reliable sites
with stable populations of the _brewsteri_ subspecies. Can you please
create a post (or let me know how to do this) to this effect?
