Costa Rica Tropical Pewee?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for your input. I thought Tropical Pewee in the field but wasn't totally convinced. I thought the lores did not look pale, the main thing that threw me off I suppose. I was quite confident it wasn't either Eastern or Western Wood-Pewee due to the less elongate shape and shorter primaries. I considered that it might be an Empidonax, and indeed someone on another forum suggested White-throated Flycatcher, but in the field I considered Empid and decided it just didn't fit with that genus (no eyering, a bit too elongate/not so round, etc.). I'm going to go with Tropical Pewee. Thanks again.
