Notice the smaller bill:
Here you can see the white tail edges (not present on the Tropical Kingbird):
You're welcome Andrew! One birder there today got 3 or 4 lifers! It was nice to see some of these birds still finding food around houses, despite the recent cold weather. We had ice here as well in the last couple of days, although it melted a bit this afternoon.
These are excellent images to show ID points of Western Kingbird, Carmella!!
Thank you Joanne.
Wow, great shots and summary Carmella!
Great photos, Carmella, and an excellent summary of the exciting birding at Cape Tormentine / Cape Spear in recent days.
Thanks Stu! Yesterday (Tuesday the 14th), we saw the Summer Tanager, Yellow-throated Warbler and the Western Kingbird. Today (Wednesday the 15th), we saw the Summer Tanager but not the YTWA or the WEKI. Today we also saw the Black-headed Gull that you had found on Sunday and an Orange-crowned Warbler and a Yellow-rumped Warbler in the causeway, just before the big blue Jourimain sign. Here is a pic of the OCWA:
Excellent image of OCWA, Carmella!
Great photo, Carmella! Thanks for the updates.
Spectacular images Carmella as always. Wonderful writeup as well.
Thanks Gail! :-)
