This was Saturday, 25 May 19, here in San Antonio at Friedrich Wilderness Park early morning. Apologize for the poor pics, but he was kind of touch to get a line on for a clear shot with good lighting. I lightened the picture up as much as I could. I noticed some yellow on the underside, and a rufus bar on the wings when I zoomed in the pic. He also seems to have a heavy bill.

Bill is too heavy for a phoebe.  This is a Myiarchus flycatcher, but I don't know if we can see enough in these photos to narrow it down to species.

Agree with all of this.

Researching a little further, and based on Birding Duo's input, I think I can safely say it is one of three: either a Great Crested, Brown Crested or Ash-throated Flycatcher. What it shows in Merlin for territory, best bets are either Great Crested or Ash-throated. I have seen a Great Crested Flycatcher recently, but not at this location. This location is heavily wooded within somewhat of a canyon setting. Juniper trees and other trees as well.
