Thanks to the help of a couple people I'm calling this and Ash-Throated Flycatcher. I lucked out and it was back this morning, and *Zora D.* took some wonderfully helpful photos http://bigstupid.org/postings/2020-06-Ash-throated/ (click to expand the phtos)
Both days it was on a snag just west of the loop trail just before it rejoined Wahkiakum Lane (going E to W), looking west towards the Dime-Lot/Kern Restoration Area. On a snag.
Many thanks to Louis Kreemer and Zora D.
