I have tried many online bird I.D. sites and they are either way to vague, or don't really help unless I know what type of bird this is. I hope someone knows this bird without a pic. But I can describe it pretty well.

This is a smaller bird kind of like a flycatcher, wren, or sparrow. Its bill is not made for cracking seeds. It holds it tail straight out most of the time unlike a wren which I think holds its tail more at a 45 degree angle. Its color is dark brown to almost black but all of its feathers have like a lighter tinge to the edges. The males have a very faint light almost white looking patch on the underside of its throat that is only visible when they stretch their heads up, the female has no such patch. I could have the sexes mixed up and it could be the other way around.

Any help would be appreciated. 6/6/2020
