Thanks, last time I ID'd a bird as E. Wood-Pewee it got kicked back as a Least Flycatcher by ebird. I was hearing Wood-Pewee, Alder, & Willow Fly. all around, but this guy was silent.

Note the very long primary projection, which rules out all empies. If you squint really hard (or lighten the photo), you should also see the dark smudges on the longest under-tail coverts -- a feature that rules out the genus Empidonax and one that is typical of Contopus.
