Hi Jo-Ann,
It sounds to me like a female or immature male American Redstart.

I saw a small bird last night while visiting a friend. It was about 4-5 inches, 
light grey with yellowish sides, no streaking. Which I immediately thought of 
flycatcher, but the tail feathers is what was striking about this bird. As it 
flew, the inside tail feathers were yellow. Suggestions as to which bird I might 
look at to help me identify this bird? I'm using Sibley's Guide which shows tail 
feathers very well but I just haven't come across the right bird yet!
