Streaked flycatcher

Myiodynastes maculatus

Description:

They were nesting in tree hollows. Woodpeckers were nearby as well so is possible that the flycatchers may be using some of the holes made by the woodpeckers. The Streaked Flycatcher is 22 cm long. The head is brown with a yellow crown patch, white supercilium, dusky eye mask and black bill. The upperparts are brown with darker brown streaks on the back, rufous and white edges on the wings, and wide chestnut edges on the rump and tail. The underparts are yellowish-white streaked with brown.

Habitat:

Tree forest in between Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

Hi Fyn! Thanks for the correction. Actually I had found the right ID and I was writing it right in the description but I had forgotten to change the common name and species name..I guess is obvious I am really absent minded :-D

Either M. luteiventris or maculatus; they look to be hard to tell apart... I'll ask a friend.
