These are great photos. I'm bad with empids., but I'm leaning toward Least. Alders are rather rare here in Colorado (though Willows, which are almost identical, are more common). The bill strikes me as too short and not wide enough for Alder, the eye ring too prominent, and the throat too gray. The photos of Alder's I'm seeing on allaboutbirds.org give the impression of birds with prominent, prominent bills, almost comically so.

I think Dusky Flycatcher is a possibility. It's among the most common empid. during migration through the Front Range. It's relatively moderately billed, shortish primary projection, and mostly grayish (though some olive wash is possible).
