Head shape is wrong for Pacific-slope, The bill looks a bit small for Willow and the belly too yellow. Hammond's and Dusky are extremely similar, though there are a few differences. I don't have any experience between the two species, but Sibley's shows Dusky paler than Hammond's and the tail longer and squared (as opposed to notched). Also Dusky has shorter primary projection than Hammond's. Personally, I'm leaning towards Dusky over Hammond's, based on the tail, but a picture of the primary projection would help if you have one.
