Eastern Wood-Pewee...maybe?

Actually looks like a Least Flycatcher to me. Definitely not a pewee with that short primary projection. 

The head angle is really disorienting but I agree, some small empid. Probably Least.

After looking at the underbill pattern I can see that this is indeed a Least Flycatcher.

Certainly none of my business but I noticed your most recent lifer is a Murphy's Petrel.  Do you mind if I ask where you saw it?  I read online it is normally in the South Pacific somewhere. 

I love reading these entries from senior birders (not an age determination) because there are so many I have never heard of.

I actually saw a couple Murphy's Petrels a few weeks ago around 20-25 miles off the coast of Sonoma County here in California. They're rare, but not entirely unexpected off the coast of California during the months of April and May.

My fault. Of the OP’s flycatcher, not the Petrel. 

Gotcha. No worries. I was super curious as to how you may try to turn this into a Great-winged Petrel!
