    I think you might have to let this one go because as far as i can tell from the picture and my knowing there is no way to ID this bird without further photos and probably a song description or recording.




    this comparison shows how close in appearance these two species really are

    picture via "all about birds"

    i am sorry wrong picture here is the correct one


  2.    most likely based on your location is a great crested with some faded yellow its breast, but if i was not paying attention to location this would to me appear to be an Ash-Throuted


    a comparison is shown here, notice how the great crested has some brighter yellow and no whit wing marks, witch your bird does have.  

    i believe we can rule out an empidonax by the clear yellow wash on underparts and redness of tail and wing feathers.
