Can someone please identify this flycatcher? Taken at Villa Florencia Hotel, Provincia de Cartago, Turrialba, Costa Rica in January. Hard to see much detail on this bird.
Thanks
Chris

Mistletoe tyrannulet (until recently paltry tyrannulet). Shape, bill shape, greyish breast etc.

Agree it looks good for Mistletoe (ex-Paltry) Tyrannulet. The only similar species I can think of from this view would be Scale-crested Pygmy-Tyrant but has a longer bill that shows pink at the base, and might be out of range to boot at your location :)
