It could be - this is why we need more evidence.
To me, the beak doesn't look that bulky but I could be wrong as there's a lot of good argument from both sides.
Sometimes a bird cannot be fully identified and, as frustrating as that can be for a birder, it's best to put it down as an unknown - or revisit the site and further the discussion.
