I agree it doesn't look like a Great-crested, with so little yellow below, but I think I want to see a bit more of the bill or wings before I say Phoebe for sure.

Thanks. Just considering this photo, I'm thinking that the compact structure overall, distinct white throat, smudge on the sides of the breast, dark, flat head, and pretty long tail are in favor of Phoebe over Pewee.

It's clearly not an empid, in my opinion.

I agree it's not an Empid, but it seems to have too much pale color around the bill to make me feel comfortable with it.
