¿? Do you have any idea where Guatemala is? Lunch was many hours ago (I had mushrooms and snow peas in cream sauce over brown rice and red cabbage coleslaw.)

I was referring to being on time to the minute - or the lack thereof. I  assume it is culturally similar to all of the other Latin American countries I've spent so much time in? Never made it to Guatemala yet.

I forgot about this after lunch and now it's after midnight so I'll give the results now and share the scoreboard and detailed analysis later. 

 

Bird 1 is a Dusky-capped Flycatcher.

Bird 2 is a Brown-crested Flycatcher.

Bird 3 is a Great Crested Flycatcher

 

The biggest differences are in bill size and the amount of yellow in the belly. I'll provide a more thorough analysis when I post the scoreboard. Great job, folks!

That was a hard one for sure - I got confused on photo 1 because Dusky-capped Flycatcher doesn't show on the allaboutbirds.com website just Dusky Flycatcher so I went with Ash-throated for number 1 photo. Great comparison of similar species!

Well it was not too hard for me, because I have seen Brown, and Great Crested, so I have already studied up on distinguishing them, and when I saw that bill on the first one it immediately stood out as neither Brown or Great Crested.
