I keep running into this species which I think is some kind of flycatcher. My guess is a least flycatcher. Eye ring, orange-yellow mandible, forked tail are good marks and it also has a very faint hue of yellow on the underbelly. Your help would be very helpful.

Thanks, Mike

I'd say an Eastern Phoebe.

They bob their tail while sitting on their perch.

Did you hear the bird vocalize at all?

Looking at Nymph's photo, I'll change my thoughts and agree with him.

The beak with a slight hook at the end being the same on the birds in both photos. I didn't notice that right away in micpic's photos.

I think you nailed it Dave. Plus in the same area I did hear Peewee songs. Thanks everyone for the help!
