Agreed, Eastern Kingbird - although I can see your thinking from this pose!

It's a kingbird species, sorochan. Possibly Eastern, though I'm not sure you get that in Alberta?

Definitely Eastern Kingbird. Despite the name, they range over most of the Western United States, even as far as British Columbia.

Best,
Jim
