Brown-crested Flycatcher for me.
I believe the other is not present in Trinidad.

According to Wikipedia, Dusky-Capped is found on Trinidad only. There are also plenty of sightings in eBird on Trinidad, but I agree with Brown-crested.

Thanks.

Both Dusky - capped and Brown - crested are found in Trinidad, so based on the feedback I conclude that it is a Brown crested.
