We can ID this flycatcher as a Cuban Pewee as follows:
- Distinct white crescent-shaped marking directly behind the eye. This is one of its field markings that distinguishes it from other similar flycatchers, such as the Eastern Wood-Pewee.
- Relatively long, broad, bicolored bill with a yellowish lower mandible.
- Gray to buff underparts.
- Short primary projection.
- Small size
- Two weak whitish wingbars. You can just make these out in the photos.
The Cuban Pewee is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 993.
