Wordless Wednesday…Almost

My morning visitor:

and the close-ups:

Any bird experts? Hubs thought dark-eyed junco but every image and detail listing I’ve found states they have a pale pink or yellow tinted bill/beak… this bird obviously has a dark one. Any help? Just curious.

Have a happy Wednesday! :)

    Looks like a fly catcher. Maybe an acadian?

    It’s a flycatcher, family Tyrannidae. I would guess a wood pewee: see here- http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/583/_/Eastern_Wood-Pewee.aspx

    I just stumbled this page, so I don’t know where these photos were taken, you should make sure that you live within the range of this species, otherwise it’s likely something else.
    Nice photos!

    Thanks for posting this…I’ve been wanting to know what kind of bird this is, too. :)

      After a bit more research today I think it’s an Eastern Phoebe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Phoebe Of course I’m not a bird expert but it’s the closest I’ve been able to find.
