What kingbird? I'm thinking Cassin's due to the white chin.

It is not a Cassin's Kingbird due to the white chin (and the "chin" in birds is restricted to the immediate underside of the bill) -- nearly all kingbirds have white chins. The difference between Cassin's and Western in that vein is that the white of the malar area, chin, and throat contrasts sharply with the dark gray face and ends abruptly at the back of the eye. That of Western continues to some nebulous well behind the eye.
