Western Kingbird

In For the Birds by WDEV Radio

Chip talks about a rare sighting of a Western Kingbird in East Montpelier. While we have Eastern Kingbird’s around here, Western Kingbirds are far more rare in Vermont. According to The Cornell Lab, “Western Kingbirds are fairly large flycatchers with large heads and broad shoulders. They have heavy, straight bills, long wings, and a medium-length, square-tipped tail.”
