I'm spending the quarantine in Oxapampa, Pasco, located at 1800 masl in central Peru.
I get a fair number of birds that come to the trees behind the house (we're on the edge of town), but this flycatcher from a few days ago has me a bit stumped.
It doesn't show on the photos but I saw a pale patch on its nape, Elaenia like, but my bird doesn't match any of the Peruvian species as far as I can tell.
Crowned slaty flycatcher seems a fair fit, only my bird didn't look quite big enough for the 16-18 cm range given by the book.
I've also considered Amazonian scrub-flycatcher, but that has really quite a stubby bill, so I'm not sold either.
Schulenberg et al have both of those species as normally occurring below 1000m, but that doesn't really concern me, since in the past months I've seen other species turn up here that are given the same stated range in the book (ruddy ground-dove, chestnut-eared araçari, black-throated mango, etc).
What say the experts?
As always, many thanks in advance.
