Which flycatcher? Sámara, Costa Rica
3 Attachment(s)
Having trouble identifying this flycatcher spotted in the early morning in coastal woods. Would not lower his head for me, and was quite distant. Please help! Many thanks.

Yellow-throated Vireo

Thanks, JWN. I am so glad now that I asked my birding chum whether she thought it could have been a Vireo. Yippee.

Sorry but disagree. The yellow seems to go back to far on the underside and the bill looks more like a warbler than a vireo

Similar extent of yellow on these...


and a comparable angle of the bill...

Combination of yellow throat/breast and white wingbars would put Pine Warbler in the frame, but the undertail is wrong (all dark).

I'm still firmly in the Yellow-throated Vireo camp.

Thanks for the rebuttal, I am convinced you are right now.
