Any better shots showing the undertail? It's either a Black-tailed or Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher.

Sorry, only picture I have.  The beak is too long for a Gnatcatcher.  Gnatcatcher's face is more rounded with shorter/straighter bill.  Any other guesses?  Saguaro National Park iw West of Tuscon Arizona, for those who may not know.

Here's a blue-gray gnatcatcher right from Whatbird's search feature, the same image is also used in the iBird app. The bill looks as long to me as your bird's bill.

Just to clarify, I wasn't IDing @Metaquatic's bird as a Blue-gray gnatcatcher. I was using the blue-gray's photo for bill comparison only, not to support an ID of which gnatcatcher is in the original photo.

Of the two possibles, due to the undertail and longer bill,  I like Blue-Gray.
