Flycatcher?

I'd like to toss out Hutton's Vireo as an option. Note the bluish-gray foot and the robustness of the bill.

Good catch. Hutton's may be right. But speaking generally, in my experience, RCKI's feet are not always obviously orange/yellow.

Ruby-crowned Kinglets have a black bill, this bird's bill is paler in color, suggesting Hutton's Vireo. Also it has contrasting pale lores which suggests Hutton's Vireo. However the wing pattern is tough to see because it is in shadow, and the proportions of the bird are tough to tell because of the unusual position sitting on the ground.

Apparently, people were worried that the bird was injured. The bird let her pick it up. She put it in a box but then it flew away.
