Flycatcher, Peru (Manu road)

Hi all,

End november i had a trip to Peru (Manu-road / Cusco area).
In a flock we had one flycatcher which we id as a Variegated Flycatcher.
Just to have confirmation of the ID, i post two photos.
Is the ID right or is it a Piratic Flycatcher?

Thx again!

Greeting,
Lennaert Steen

The opus page says:

Very similar to the more common Piratic Flycatcher which is smaller and lacks the rufous upper tail.
I am not sure I can see enough of the tail to really use that info? Any other images where you can see that?

I think it looks better for Piratic Flycatcher, as the bill seems to be entirely black and is rather short. I think we'd get at least a hint of rufous in the tail of Variegated too.

Hello Niels & Andrew,

Thx for your reaction. These are the only two images i have.
I agree with Andrew. Bill too short / black and some rufous in the tail we got to see.
Piratic flycatcher it is.
Variegated is also a migrant and occur till 500m. We saw at 900m and at medio November.
Too many things against Variegated.

Thx again. I have some more mystery-birds to go :)
