I saw this flycatcher on Sunday May 7 at Colony Farms in an area between the road and the communal gardens. It was perching on a tree and hawking insects, then returning to the same tree. My impression was Western Wood-pewee for the behaviour but the colouring did not seem right.

Since there were Dusky Flycatchers seen at Colony around this time, I wonder if that is possible for this one.

Due to head shape and lack of any discernible eye ring I would lean towards western wood-pewee. Seeing the front of the bird would be helpful. However, as you know these flycatchers are all very difficult, particularly with photos and lighting and not hearing vocalization.
