Apparently the observation did not submit last time. Note gray rump and uppertail coverts, fine facial markings, and paleness underneath. Hunting in a group with three other birds before moving off further down a hill.

Description

This observation is not good enough to get to research grade, but just want to upload it to document it. 3 birds seen, one even further than this bird atop a dead tree snag. To be fair, very few other similar candidates are present this time of year (Long-billed, long-legged, predominantly gray from a distance with an eye-stripe, on a grassy, rocky hillside with sparse vegetation).

Unsure of ID. Seemingly warbler-like, moving from branch to branch in the canopy, yet slowly and methodically. Medium-sized, smaller than nightingale but larger than House sparrow. Cream-color wash on the bird was present, not an after-effect.
