Cuban Pewee (Contopus caribaeus) - 06Jan2017

Per Wiki:
The Cuban pewee or crescent-eyed pewee (Contopus caribaeus) is a species of bird in the family Tyrannidae. It is found in Cuba and the northern Bahamas. It was formerly lumped with the Hispaniolan pewee (C. hispaniolensis) and Jamaican pewee(C. pallidus) as a single species, the Greater Antillean pewee.
This small flycatcher measures 16 cm (6.3 in). It is dark olive-grey above and dark grey to buff below. In place of an eyering, it has a white crescent-shaped marking directly behind the eye. The broad, flat bill is bicolored, with a yellow lower mandible
I have seen these in Eleuthera and now in Cuba.
