The bird was seen in excellent light, about 1/2 mile north of the Tubac Bridge along the Anza trail close to the creek. Distinctive dark olive-grayish backed, tail wagging flycatcher with olive sides, whitish breast and slight yellowish belly.Throat was whitish and head was dark, similar to back color . Gave the distinctive single note call that can be slightly reminiscent of a Black Phoebe, several times before disappearing. Roughly the same size as the other two, more common Phoebes. Tail wagging, posture, and plumage are distinctive. I live in the east and see this species almost every day.
