Name that Bird

If you have any guesses as to what species of bird is perched on the cholla cactus in the picture below, feel free to leave a comment.  I got a picture of it from a distance, but I'm not sure what species of bird I captured in the photo.  The photo was taken in the western Mojave National Preserve.  Note the streaks of blue and white by its eyes.

  1. Is it possibly a black-throated gray warbler?? The picture in Sibley's looks closer than pic in the National Geographic, and the range in S's includes the desert.
