Unknown bird in New Hampshire

Recommended Posts

Hello! I observed the bird in the attached photo within a mixed flock of birds (back-throated green, black-throated blue, pine, blackpoll, and Tennessee warblers, American redstarts, black-capped chickadees, and ruby-crowned kinglets) in a low-elevation mixedwood forest in Meredith, New Hampshire. It has the dark head and eye of a phoebe, but it's built like a chickadee with a yellowish wash on the breast and throat and some yellow in the wings. I'm lost. Any thoughts on what it could be? My best guess is a phoebe, and it's perched in a way that makes it look "neckless" and the angle of the camera somehow makes its breast, throat, and wings look tinged with yellow.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick review! You don't think the head and back are too dark? Although I guess that could also be the camera and lighting playing tricks on me.
