Merlin concurs with others here.

Yeah, Merlin gets it right, but I didn't recognize it. Yes, the gnatcatcher was among a choice of birds, but to me, its image as Merlin presented, just didn't look like my bird...although, I must say, I at the time I did think the gnatcatcher could have been my bird, but I lacked confidence to make a definitive determination.

Looks to me like the Knatcatcher wins - although yours certainly has the body feathers pressed closer to the body. That body shape was a big part of my idea about it.

Fun !!
