Female flycatcher in Sichuan, China (1 Viewer)

Took this flycatcher pic along the Longcanggou Mountain road, Sichuan, China in May 2016.
We thought at the time that it might be a female Slaty-blue Ficedula tricolor (I believe our guide Summer Wong has seen them here before) but some of the plumage features look inconsistent to me. It appears to have a dark-rump with white above. Maybe a juvenile male?

Have cross-posted this on the Sichuan forum (http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?p=3414067#post3414067)

Well done Mark, am not sure why I 'missed' Rufous-gorgetted....they were fairly common in the area.
