Costa Rica - juvenile Tanager?

Hello - I came across what I assume to be a juvenile tanager last week on the central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, just north of Dominical. It appears to me to be a juvenile, but i can't ID it. Other tanagers I had seen that morning were Thraupis episcopus, Thraupis palmarum, and Eucometis penicillata. I was within 5 km of the coast at about 100m in elevation.

With a little white showing up on it's Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, it's a nice image of a juvenile White-shouldered Tanager.

Thank you. I was kind of leaning that way, but wasn't sure!

I will upload the image to the gallery.
