Tropical Kingbird (Tyrannus melancholicus) A Tropical Kingbird I photographed recently. Despite being one of Trinidad's most common urban birds, I somehow rarely ever see them in an appropriate perch or distance for me to get a good photo, this one is not the best, but it is my first so I figured I'd still post it.

The Tropical Kingbird is a large tyrant flycatcher. This bird breeds from southern Arizona and the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas in the USA through Central America, South America as far as south as central Argentina and western Peru, and on Trinidad and Tobago. Birds from the northernmost and southern breeding areas migrate to warmer parts of the range after breeding.
