Not Sure, Moab, UT, USA

Hi, all.

Was out hiking in the wilds today, and saw this guy in a tree. I have several ideas what he might be, but there is something wrong with all of those. Can anyone tell me what he is?

Thanks for help!

Wouldn't the eye ring and wing-bar make it a Gray Vireo?

The beak looks larger than those of a Juniper Titmouse so I'm going with Gray Vireo.

I have to admit, looking more carefully it looks more like a vireo than a titmouse.

Thank you, all. Those were my two options, and I was only clinging to the Titmouse ID because he looks like he's got a slight crest, but many other things say Vireo, so Vireo he is. Apparently, Gray Vireos are uncommon here, and he's a new lifer for me. :) Thanks again!
