It's hard to make out the beak....maybe too wide for a flycatcher.....more finch-like do you think ? One way or another, it's probably a youngster, so doesn't have any recognizable markings yet.
I think there's a bird-watching word that would cover it....LBJ ( little brown job ) !! A useful term when having problems identifying a little brown bird !
