It looks similar to several other tyrant flycatchers: it is larger than the Lesser Kiskadee and has more rufous plumage in wings and tail than the Boat-billed Flycatcher as well as a narrower bill.
The photos above were taken in Costa Rica by Alexandra Makhnina who observed how the bird was not worried to be close to people and was sitting on a tree hunting over rocks and water.
