Gray tones overall and angular head with large bill say Willow/Alder to me.

Another vote for willow/alder, though leaning towards the former based on time alone.

Angle is tricky but I'd call it a Least. Short wings barely extending beyond base of tail. Big-headed, short tailed look. Complete white eyering. Short. broad looking bill with pale mandible. Grayish head. Buff wing-bars. broad white tertial fringes and brown back indicate a young bird.
