La Sagra’s Flycatcher (Tom Fool)

Length 19-22cm (7.5-8.5″). Fairly common breeding resident in the Cayman Islands – recorded only on Grand Cayman. Prefers mangrove, woodland, shrubland and secondary growth. Immature birds have very rusty upperparts and greyish underparts. Tends to perch in low branches, and is highly approachable. Not to be confused with similarly common Caribbean Elaenia, which has a small white crest, or the much larger Kingbirds.
