I saw this in the Kolob Canyons of Zions National Park last week. I think it's a Flycatcher of some kind because of the crested head, but I really don't have much experience with Flycatchers. So I need some help. I am leaning toward Ash-throated, but the birdlist that I got at the visitor's center shows the listed Flycatchers as being uncommon. I might be on the totally wrong trail.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Definitely a flycatcher. I'm thinking Western Wood-Pewee.

My Sibley guide doesn't show the Western Wood-Pewee as having yellow (am I missing something). This bird looks yellowish to me.

Looks like a Cordilleran Flycatcher -- an Ash-throated would show yellow only partway up the belly.

I dont see Pewee in the bird.
Other smaller fly's that match with the range should be considered.

I also don't think it's a Wood-Pewee and would err on the side of the Empids.
