We thought at first this was a brown-crested flycatcher because it responded to that bird call and
it was a large bird, but since the brown-crested is a rare sighting, it must be an ash-throated. The
red on the inside of the tail appears to go all the way to the bottom in some of the photos but in
others, it doesn't.  These bird are about 8.5 inches long.  Notice the hook on the end of the bill.
