Fairly small flycatcher with limited range on the Caribbean slope from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. Rather distinctive with combination of gray head, warm tawny breast, olive back, and tawny wingbars. Sexes similar. Found singly or in pairs in tall second growth or forest edge, especially in areas with dense understory. Occurs in the lowlands, up to around 1,000 m. Listen for a sputtering call followed by a burry whistle.
