Rusty-margined Flycatcher?

Looks OK to me for Rusty-Margined but they are hard to separate visually from Social Flycatchers. If it was showing its crown patch, you'd be sure (RM is golden, Social is vermillion), but I can't see any hint of either colour in your shot despite its crown feathers being fluffed a little.

Looking at a range map Social are absent from some parts of the Pantanal, so perhaps more likely RM?
