This looks like an Olive-sided Flycatcher. This species is very distinctive as it looks like it is wearing a streaked vest (dark gray sides contrast with the white in the center). Other tips include that it often has a rear-peaked large head, short tail, and inconspicuous wingbars. 

The Olive-sided Flycatcher often perches upright on top of dead branches and trees, as seen in your pictures.
