Two problematic flycatcher IDs (1 Viewer)


The two flycatchers whose photos are attached to this message were atop trees alongside the Sucusari River near ExplorNapo Lodge in the Napo River drainage of the Amazon basin in northeastern Peru in late March 2013. My tentative ID's are Amazonian Scrub-Flycatcher for the bird with the yellow wash on breast and belly, and Crowned Slaty Flycatcher for the brownish bird with grey breast and belly. Any help I can get to confirm the ID's or to offer alternative IDs wouild be appreciated. HELP!

Hi Andy:
Thanks for your confirmation of Crowned Slaty Flycatcher ID.
Have you had a chance to check out #2 (possibly Amazonian Scrub-Flycatcher)? (Yes, I know it's a lousy photo).
Best regards,
