Yasuni National Park, Ecuador - Oct, 2017

This bird was photographed in the grounds of Napo Wildlife Center, Yasuni National Park, Ecuador.
I'm afraid I don't often get things right as I am a novice. I have been sorting through the photos I initially decided were Tropical Kingbirds but this bird looks distinctly different.
In fact, from online research I believe it to be a Cattle Tyrant but everything suggests I'm wrong again. 1) No cattle 2) Photographed at the Napo Wildlife Center at the side of a lake 3) Is it likely to be seen in this part of Ecuador?
Once again expert advice is needed to put me straight.

It is a Cattle Tyrant indeed, and yes they are present on that part of Ecuador.

OMG that's the first time I've been 100% right in ages. I'm taking that as a definite confirmation before someone else posts and pops my bubble. Thanks for taking the time to reply and with the best possible answer!
