The BOAT-BILLED FLYCATCHER,
pitangua, is a large Tyrant Flycatcher and the only
member of its genus. It is present from Mexico to mid South
America. It can be distinguished from the Great Kiskadee by
its massive, boat-shaped bill and less rufous plumage on
wings and tail.
The photos were taken in Costa Rica by Alexandra
Makhnina who says that, like many other tyrant flycatchers,
the bird was not timid around people.
The WHITE-RINGED FLYCATCHER,
albovittatus, is present in southern Central America,
Colombia and Ecuador. It looks remarkably similar to several
other tyrant flycatchers in the region.
