Out of focus Northern Rough-winged Swallow confirm needed


Recommended Posts

Birders near me thought it was some kind of a flycatcher.  Merlin's and iBird Photo sleuth are both giving Northern Rough-winged Swallow, but for a lifer, and from such a bad photo, I would like a human confirm.  Taken this afternoon in Boynton beach, Florida:

Any way to narrow it down?  The colors on the bad pic are accurate - white underbelly and the rest of the body dull gray.

I'm thinking Eastern Wood-Pewee based on the gray back, short legs, indistinct wingbars, and seemingly long primary projection.  The lack of gray on the flanks has me second guessing though, so wait for other opinions.

Apps give this hit, depending on the crop.  That would also be a lifer, so I'm hoping for any positive ID.  ?
