Cordilleran Flycatcher? Zion National Park, Utah

Hi, all.

Saw this *noisy* little cutie while hiking Taylor Creek in Zion NP 2 days ago. I think it's a Cordilleran flycatcher, but want a second opinion. What else might it be?

Thanks, and sorry for the poor picture...had to zoom WAY in to get it.

I think it is going to be impossible to identify from this photo, but maybe someone will see something in it I do not.

Cordilleran Flycatcher appears to have a preference for shaded coniferous woods, that’s a plus, also range, apart from Willow, I can’t see any other alternatives, bearing in mind that any other out of range breeders that might pass through, probably wouldn’t be moving yet. End-pointing eye-ring with slight crest is also a good feature, pp (from what you can see) doesn’t appear too might be in with a chance?
