Western Kingbird: Large flycatcher, pale gray head and breast, yellish belly, white throat and upper breast, and yellow lower breast and belly. Wings are brown. Tail is black with white edges. Feeds on insects, fruits and berries. Bouyant fluttering flight on shallow wing beats. Hovers over prey and dips down.

Habitat: farms, shelter belts, semi-open country, roadsides, fences, and wires

When feeding their young they will ferociously defend the nest, and will harass crows, and hawks in their immediate territory

Their Song a nasal, sputtering series that rises in inflection, speed, and pitch, then falls quickly: prip pp prreep pp PREEpoopop. CALLS similarly clipped spik, pik, and kit sounds.
