Costa Rica, large Grey bird

I have a feeling that the ID of this bird, pictured in Tortuguero in March, should be fairly obvious, but it isn't. Not helped by the angle. Can someone ID please?

Thanks

Drongo or Flycatcher Botswana

Help with this bird in Chobe NP please.

Slightly red eye suggests a Drongo sp. but at this angle the tail looks wrong.

Southern Black Flycatcher? Something else?

TIA
