I spotted this flycatcher at the Endovalley Campground in Rocky Mountain National Park, CO on 7/29/12.

At first I thought it might be a Dusky Flycatcher, but on looking at the picture closer, I think it might be a Cordilleran.

The bill shape seems wide, and the lower mandible is very pale.

Any thoughts?
