The marking and coloration are good for Say's - but the body-language and "cuteness" just aren't Phoebe-like to me. But that is sooo subjective.

Yeah, something is "off" about it being a phoebe for me, too. Couldn't think of anything else with that coloration and range, though.

I was thinking the same thing. Seems to long and slender for a Phoebe, but I looked at other Say's images on Google and there were some similar looking ones

Thanks everyone, I was thinking Say's Phoebe, but the fact that it didn't have the gray accross the eye threw me off.
