Unknown Bird - Mexico

This shot was taken north of Playa del Carmen the last week of March. I'm not quite sure what it is.

Any help in identifying it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

It's a Kiskadee. Too much rufous in the wings for a Boat-billed and way too big for a Social Flycatcher. Nice shot!

I looked up Kiskadee and found that there were Lesser and Greater.

Thanks to Neils and all others for pointing me in the right direction.

Only the Great Kiskadee is found in Mexico.
