Never mind, I just looked at the video. It's a Say's Phoebe beyond any shred of doubt.

As the eBird reviewer for Tillamook County, I have been pondering this bird for several days. I was all
set to validate it based on the still photographs, but when I looked at the video I changed my mind. The
behavior, i.e., the lack of emphatic tail dipping, is just wrong for Eastern Phoebe. However, the plumage doesn’t
really look much like a Say’s, either.
