    Default Flycatcher sp. Quintana Roo, Mexico

    Shot of a flycatcher taken near Akumal, QR, Mexico a couple of weeks ago. Candidates are Brown-crested, Dusky or Yucatan. I did see other Brown-crested during the week, but this one seems to have a different head shape?

    Many thanks

    The seemingly little or no visible rufous in undertail suggest Dusky-capped, or indeed Yucatan - which is perhaps slightly paler yellow below and with less peaked nape compared to Dusky. Brown-crested with obvious rufous in undertail and larger bill.
