They look funny with the big bald face and little eyes.

Tachinidae: Gonia sp.
Tachinidae: Gonia sp.

These resemble Robin's photo identified as Gonia frontosa (1). That, or the genus at least, would be my guess, but the Tachinidae is an absurdly large family.

It looks like the same family. Thanks, I wasn't even sure it was a Tachinidae.
