ID confidence and determination100%
this series of trills made by what I presume to be Sapphire Flycatcher; the bird is a very small blue flycatcher with orange breast and head, the orange extending around the eye onto the lores; upperparts dark blue, perhaps brighter on the rump, quite long-tailed, most of the underparts gray [Ed.: description can only be this; recording matches XC 19356 and BSA sonagram very closely]
