firstname.lastname@example.org Posted September 8, 2021 Share Posted September 8, 2021 I've been reading about Tropical Kingbirds, and how they, and Cassin's Kingbirds, look similar to Western Kingbirds. This prompted me to look back in my archives and scrutinize my "Western" Kingbird pics. This pic, taken in Omaha back in June 2016 was originally ID'd as a Western Kingbird. Now I have doubts. The bill seems too large to be a Western. A Cassin's bill is larger, and a Tropical is even larger than that. I also don't see the prominent white edge to the tail feathers--a prominent feature on Western Kingbirds. Either a Cassin's or a Tropical, would both be new Lifer birds for me. Is this either, or just wishful thinking? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
