What other choices did Merlin give, if any? Do you have any other photos?  I'm having a hard time seeing a Gray Flycatcher but that doesn't mean it couldn't be or that it isn't. 🙂

Loggerhead shrike is the other option and the range map says they just about reach pennsylvania.

I can see it more for a Shrike than a Gray Flycatcher but that doesn't mean it is. To my eyes, it appears too dark for a Gray, I don't see a white eyering, the wing doesn't look like it has two bars and the bill looks a bit too thick.  Why couldn't it be a Northern Shrike instead of a Loggerhead? I think Northern fits better.  🙂

I don't think there's enough white for either shrike.  I also don't know if the pink on the belly is pigment or reflection.

Not sure how to respond to that 😐

It was the closest I could come to matching your 'Airplane!' quote.
