Looks like Phoebe but with mark on chest

The songbird that I'm trying to identify is in Northern Virginia nesting in a bluebird box. She and he look the same. They are olive to tan grayish color with horizontal striping in the tail. The coloring is very smooth with the underside lighter than the top. She has a black mark on her chest. Her song is a tweetering warble. To me she looks something like a Phoebe or a Kinglet.
