Northern Caribbean Costa Rica Flycatcher (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
This bird was seen at Laguna del Lagarto, in Costa Rica in May of 2019. Obviously a Flycatcher of some type, but I am having a hard time pinning it down. A fledgling?? After resizing the bird has been distorted. Not as long and skinny as the pictures show.

Thank you for your thoughts. I have seen and photographed many Tropical Kingbirds in many different locals, including this one and I really did not think it was a TK. Grey-capped FC it is.
