Pewee? New Mexico USA

Hi everyone. I believe this is a western wood pewee. Photos taken a few days ago in the mountains of northern New Mexico, USA. Sorry for the low quality but these are the best ones I got.

The third photo shows what looks like a dark collar on the bird but that is a shadow from one of the tree branches, not a collar. Also the tail has what look like black tips but that is a shadow as well.

Thanks for any help.

Can't think what else it might be, although pewees are said to usually nest away from tree trunks.

Thanks, the only thing I could think of was maybe a willow or dusky flycatcher, but I think those would have at least a slight eye ring.

Looks pretty good for a pewee to me as well
