bird near Cariari, Costa Rica

I found this bird along a roadside at El Zota Biological Station in Costa Rica. It is probably something obvious but the bill length keeps throwing me off.

Looks to be a female Olive-crowned Yellowthroat (Geothlypis semiflava).
Bill size looks about right compared to this Panamanian male:
