Can someone please confirm this to be a brown-crested flycatcher? Taken in Tamarindo Costa Rica in March.
Thanks
Chris

With the other confusion species being Ash-throated which I think this might be, as to my eye, a less robust bill than one might find on Brown-crested, also the habitat with the former preferring brushy wooded habitats rather than BCF preferring larger trees perching rarely in the open perhaps unlike your bird?

Cheers

Either that one or Nutting's. Suspect Brown-crested but since they both look so similar, without more views and/or hearing it, I don't feel comfortable giving a positive ID.
