Summary:   With a problematic date for this sighting and no photo, it came down to the description of the bird which included rufous cap, thin bill and yellow throat and vent which is pretty convincing, but didn't include mention of streaking on the breast or tail wagging, which would have helped. Several other species were thought to be possibilities and weren't quite ruled out.
