Mystery flycatcher

When I am out birding, I don’t always get the look I want at every bird. In fact, this is almost always the case. Just this morning there was an adult male that dropped down into the vegetation after barely giving me a chance to ID it. I could see it skulking around between the weedy stems but all I could see was that there was movement (is this a hint that it was actually a Connecticut Warbler? ha!).

I would like you all to test your ID skills and identify the flycatcher in this video. Not once does it give you a good view from the front, so good luck! The answer is in the comments.
