Flycatcher - Western Wood-peewee? So. California

Although not a good close up, this flycatcher was shot on the edge of stream bed, 30 miles inland from the coast. I think the dark edge across the wings is a shadow from the branch. I only have side shots.

Flycatchers are not my strongest point in birds but this looks like a Wood Pewee to me.
