Flycatcher or vireo

To me, even though the eyering looks a little worn, the wing bars, tail-primary projection proportion, longish tail and overall color looks good for Pacific-Slope Flycatcher.

Not a Pacific-slope IMO -- not nearly yellow/brown enough. With that long bill, looks like a good candidate for a Gray Flycatcher. What time of year was this taken? If recently, Gray is perhaps a bit more likely.

It was taken yesterday, it does look like some of the gray flycatchers i see on google and you're right about it not being pacific-slope, I could tell right away it looked too different.

Just logging in for the first time in like 6 months...any chance the photos could be uploaded again? If it is a Gray I'm wondering if it's one of the ones that we know about (Irvine Regional Park and Mile Square Regional Park) or if it's a different one. Anyway, I'd like to see the photos if they can be put up again...thanks.
