Flycatcher ID Help, Please

Saw a pair of small birds that flew like Black Phoebes (but were'nt) and got a series of photos. I think the birds were Brown-crested Flycatchers and would like to get confirmation or otherwise on the ID. These birds stayed low ,perching on the rope railing or on a small low shrub. Can't remember any sound from them. I've seen Ash-throated Flycatchers in other San Diego locations but this was the first time I'd seen such a bird at the Tijuana Estuary in Imperial Beach, CA. The Ash-throated Flycatchers I've seen have always stayed high in a tree. The two birds were flitting about as I was shooting so I can't say that all the photos posted are of the same bird.

Thanks for any help,
