I'm not sure if my original post has gone through to Massbird but I now see a further ebird report of the Pacific-slope Flycatcher from today (Nov 7th), so definitely still worth a try though my experience on cool blustery days has been poor. I've now seen the bird on three out of six visits but had the least success on windy days.
