Does this pass as an Olive-sided Flycatcher (Virginia, September 30, 2020)? (1 Viewer)

Hi,

I took some (lousy) pictures of this flycatcher today in northern Virginia. It was high up in a tree.

Does it pass as an Olive-sided Flycatcher, or is this just another Eastern Wood Pewee?

It seems to have a dark "vest", but it bill does not seem that "stout" (maybe I did not get a good angle). Anyway, what do you think?

Thanks in advance,
Howard

To my eye Howard this almost looks like an intermediary between the two, however I think it looks too “light” for OSF (particularly the bill) think EWP might be a better bet? See what others say.

Cheers
