Flycatcher and warbler from Cancun, Mexico

I think warbler is female American Redstart. The flycatcher I have no idea.

Yep, correct on female American Redstart. I'll pass on the flycatcher

Howell and Webb's 1995 Mexican field guide maps Gray Flycatcher west of the Isthmus of Tehuantepac (or very roughly the eastern borders of Veracruz and Oaxaca), which means that it doesn't reach Cancún. The primary projection looks too long for that species, as well. Have you considered Eastern Wood-Pewee?

Yes, with orange lower mandible - but I thought the head was too rounded - no peak?

It is a rather non-peaked head. I'm not strong on non-calling empid/pewee types, especially from photographs. But, not too many empids have a long primary projection.

Yet another shot

This is a different bird taken a few days ago, and I had already guessed Eastern Wood Pewee but head has definite peak.

It's an eastern wood-pewee, unless western wood-pewee occurs there too, in which case they're indistinguishable.

Thanks for all the help, Eastern Wood-pewee has it then.

Western Wood-Pewee is not mapped for the Yucatan Peninsula in Howell and Webb. That species averages darker with less orange on the lower mandible than Easterns.
