Black Phoebe - When I first saw this, I thought it was a Black Phoebe, until it flew a little closer allowing me to see the light wing bars and pale yellow underside. The very dark grey or black color is seems to be unique among flycatchers with pale yellow undersides. Thanks to the BIRDWG05 maillist for help in confirming it as a Black Phoebe - just an abnormally yellow one.
