Which flycatcher? Sámara, Costa Rica

Having trouble identifying this flycatcher spotted in the early morning in coastal woods. Would not lower his head for me, and was quite distant. Please help! Many thanks.

Thanks, JWN. I am so glad now that I asked my birding chum whether she thought it could have been a Vireo. Yippee.

Sorry but disagree. The yellow seems to go back to far on the underside and the bill looks more like a warbler than a vireo

Similar extent of yellow on these...

https://neotropical.birds.cornell.ed...etvir/overview

https://www.larkwire.com/library/bir...ongs-and-calls

and a comparable angle of the bill...

https://rtpi.org/yellow-throated-vireo-2/

Combination of yellow throat/breast and white wingbars would put Pine Warbler in the frame, but the undertail is wrong (all dark).

I'm still firmly in the Yellow-throated Vireo camp.

Thanks for the rebuttal, I am convinced you are right now.
