I know you said it was definitely not a bluebird, but could it have been a
female Mountain Bluebird?  A long shot, I know, but so unusual you might
have overlooked it.

On a walk today, I came across a bird in the campground that I couldn't
identify. At first glance it looked like a Phoebe but tail did not wag. Then
noticed a pale rosy color across the upper breast. Definitely not a
bluebird! It had the upright flycatcher posture, dark head and wings and
pale grey breast except for the pinkish swath. No photos, unfortunately. Any
ideas?
