I'd say it's a flycatcher with dark bill and not much to no eye-ring -- which would make it an Eastern Phoebe. However, and this is the problem with identification from photographs, a really key ingredient is missing here - its voice. That's always a safe ID feature (once you know it) they have a call which is quite unlike any other species.
