Greater Pewee

The open fields around my house with many perches form prime habitat for highland flycatchers. However I have not see this particularly large (18 cm) species (Contopus pertinax pertinax) very often. The bird appears much darker grey than the illustration in Howell and Webb, but its Id is confirmed by the bright orange lower mandible.
