Spotted this flycatcher yesterday in Eau Claire, WI. Didn't hear it vocalize. Any guesses as to what it may be?

Thanks!

Hard to say. It looks like Least Flycatcher is the most common in the area, but the bill on this bird doesn't look blunt or triangular enough for Least. Maybe it's just the lighting. The bill has me thinking Acadian, but wait for some other input.
