hmmm .... Great Crested Flycatcher anywhere in Illinois in March is essentially unheard of. My guess is Eastern Phoebe, which can be quite yellow underneath (and that would be amplified, if there was snow on the ground).

EAPH can make all kinds of strange calls (I heard one in TX just a few months ago that had some very experienced birders certain we were hearing a Myiarchus sp.) -- like the beginning of this recording:
