I'm not so sure . . .  least's are always described as having a 'complete bold eyering';  this bird clearly lacks that.  The primary projection is not long; more moderate to short - 'shorter' leaning more least, but again, no eyering.  I'd lean willow (or alder) - but unless it's singing - probably not gonna achieve absolute id

I think it's either the lighting that is making the eyering appear darker or this is a particularly dull bird.  The head, eye, and bill proportions and primary projection support Least.
