Panama - Bocas del Toro: Dusky-capped Flycatcher? (1 Viewer)

Dear all,

I saw this bird on the 12th of August 2018 at the Red Frog Beach (Isla Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro, Panama).

Am I right that this is a Dusky-capped Flycatcher? I´m a little confused about the lack of rufous in the wings...

Thanks in advance!
Mario

Looks good: although the location is not the same, the following comment is probably relevant: "Birds from east PA lack rufous on wings and tail (but all imms show some cinnamon on wings)" (Vallely & Dyer)

Something similar is mentioned in the older Ridgely and Gwynne Field guide; they put the limit at Veraguas, east of there the rufous is missing.

Thank you both for your replies and the informations!
Then I think my bird didn´t read the books, because Bocas del Toro is west of Veraguas...;)
