She is a lesser Elenia or elenia chiriquensis, catching flies in Tilaran. Lovely songs are in her repertoire as well, although the males are more vocal. She looks like a cross between a crested tit and a greenfinch and she is about that size.
So this is nš2 LBJ

Many thanks for all your votes on the elusive predator, feel quite chuffed that I found their hideout.
Cheers and thanks to Walter for his generous award.

Last but not least, SPECIAL thanks to Mike Young for IDing my grassquit, the last LBJ.

Excellent shot of this wee bird, yet another species that is new to me.
A very pretty perch but with the bird showing up well against the OOF uncluttered b/g, Annette.

Aha, a fine looking LBJ here, Annette.
The "LBJ" standing for all those small brown birds, where identification in bird books becomes a nightmare, due to their similarities and are thus collectively known as "Little Brown Jobs". Due to the amazing amount of small yellow birds in Kenya, also falling into the same nightmarish situation, I dub them by the same title.
Love this image Annette - and you have done well to find its 'proper' name Wink

She may be a LBJ but her hairstyle certainly makes her stand out, a fine shot indeed Annette
