Looks like a Hutton's Vireo to me, based on the partial eye ring and chunky bill (compared to similar Ruby-crowned Kinglet), if i could see blue legs and feet it would be 100%.

Definitely HUVI - combination of the heavy, hooked bill, large eye, broken eyering, streaky underparts, long, forked tail, body shape, contrast between the brownish head and underparts, and contrasting dark wings make this guy a Hutton's.
