Flycatcher - Costa Rica (1 Viewer)

Observed in Alajuela region of Costa Rica on April 1, 2019. Merlin Bird ID suggests Social Flycatcher (the bill on the bird in my photo looks too big to me) OR Great Kiskadee (the bird in my photo lacks rufous in wings expected in Great Kiskadee) OR Gray-capped Flycatcher (the white eyebrow on the bird in my photo seems too strong for Gray-capped Flycatcher). Any guidance would be appreciated.

Of those it's social flycatcher. Depending where you are in CR you'd also want to look out for white-ringed flycatcher. I'm not familiar with this species but it looks almost identical. However, it's a canopy species and unlikely to be perching on a wire fence.

Thanks.
