I’ve seen two myself, both during winter. One was at the Department of Natural Resources marine station on the shoreline of Budd Inlet, about 1983, and the other was during a Christmas Bird Count, along McAllister Creek at the old abandoned hatchery.

The Washington Birder county checklist says there are less than 5 records of Say’s Phoebe in Thurston County.

Just before noon, I saw a bird flycatching atop Office Bldg. 2 at 11th & Washington in downtown Oly WA.
I put my binocs on it & was pleased to see it was a Say'd Phoebe. I watched it for about 5 minutes until it flew to the Licensing Blg. & out of view.
Interestingly, I saw one in the same spot about 10-12 years ago at this time of year.
