Is this a Mouse-colored Tyrannulet?

I saw this bird in my yard today, and it struck me that I have never had a "professional" confirmation of its identity. Because it is a tricky family of birds to ID (Tyrannulets and some Flycatchers) I thought I should put my mind to rest by having someone tell me whether I am right or wrong in calling it a Mouse-colored Tyrannulet. I guess the other option would be the Southern Beardless Tyrannulet.
Thanks.

Looks like a fairly typical Mouse-coloured to me (at least the bird on the first photo; if the second is another individual I'd prefer not to put an ID on that one)

Thanks Rasmus. The second one is another individual; I just included it to give a view of the back. I am quite certain that they are both of the same species though.
