Cassin’s Kingbird


(Tyrannus vociferans)

Cassin’s Kingbird can be easily confused with Western Kingbird, especially in glary light. It differs from Western by virtue of a darker gray head and breast, a more contrasting area of white on the face, and contrastingly light edges on its wing coverts. Although their ranges overlap, Western is far more widespread, with Cassin’s limited to just the southwest.
