A new (for me) bird in our backyard a couple times in the last few days. Bancroft, Ontario, which is somewhat near Algonquin Provincial Park. Hangs out on a zipline wire about 10 feet up, then drops down to the lawn to presumably grab an insect then back to the wire. Had someone think it might be an Eastern Phoebe, the neat Merlin Bird Photo ID app suggested Willow Flycatcher or Acadian Flycatcher. I think it also kind of looks like the picture of an Eastern Wood-Peewee in one of my bird books. Most of the flycatchers look the same to me, although the wing bars make me think it is not an Eastern Phoebe. Thanks in advance for any help.
