Tropical Kingbird

Tropical Kingbird, on one of my Yellow Bell trees, Atenas, Costa Rica, by Charlie Doggett

I’ve seen them nearer the coast but today is the first time I have noticed one here. The yellow breast makes one think of the Kiskadee and several flycatchers, but the short beak, different head markings, and v-tail label this guy! The next is not as good a shot, but fun to catch any bird in flight! Photographed from my balcony/deck/patio, whatever.
