Thank you Mark, Margaret, Laura and John for responding.

Judging by the range of suggestions it is obvious that the photograph is too ambiguous to make a positive identification.

FYI the back story is that I was at Monga with a very experienced bird watcher who was convinced she heard a Gilbert's Whistler calling. She said that it was too far east of its normal range but she was familiar with the call and was almost certain that is what it was. We spent some time trying to track the bird down but I did not see the bird that was calling. The bird in the photograph was in the area but it was not calling at the time I took the photograph. It was a long shot, but I was hoping someone would say "that's a Gilbert's Whistler!".

Thanks again,
