Jamaica birds: Flycatchers

Stolid Flycatcher

Rufous-tailed Flycatcher

Jamaican Pewee

Loggerhead Kingbird
Of the flycatchers, we saw perhaps half-a-dozen or so Rufous-tailed Flycatchers (endemic), only two or three Jamaican Pewees (endemic), a few Sad Flycatchers (endemic, no pics) and loads and loads of Loggerhead Kingbirds. I found one Stolid Flycatcher (endemic subspecies) just outside Kingston, at Two Caves, on the Portland Ridge, while (unsuccessfully) searching for Bahama Mockingbird. Sadly we missed the endemic Jamaican Elaenia, but we did see a pair of the chunky flycatcher-like endemic Jamaican Becard (again, no pic).
