Taken over the weekend in Water Valley, MS. Is this bird an Eastern Phoebe? I lightened up the pic because there was too much back light when the pic was taken.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.Posted Image

I'd say a Great Crested Flycatcher

Yep, GCF. An Eastern Phoebe wouldn't show that extensive, bright yellow on the belly and chest and wouldn't have such a large bill and pronounced crown.

Life List: 675
