Willow flycatcher seconded. Looking at appearance and behavior, it looks like an Epidonax flycatcher, and the weak eye ring identifies it as a willow flycatcher.

Good example of why Traill's Flycatchers are not considered identifiable to species by appearance with high confidence.  Can be probably one or the other, but never definite, so best left as slash if reporting to eBird.
