Eastern Kingbirds are quite Democratic
Eastern Kingbirds or tyrannus tyrannus are fairly common flycatchers of East of the Rockies. Kingbirds have an awesome black and white contrast going on. Their key look is their white chest and the white tip to their tail. They seem to enjoy wet habitats. Its probably good for cultivating their main food source, flies. They are pretty adaptable birds as you find them across different habitats and they have such a huge range. Kingbirds, like most flycatchers, have their song programmed and don't learn them like warbler do.
