Eastern Kingbird
Note the white tip to the tail. This is the most widespread of the kingbirds in North America and the only species to breed in most of the East. It is a long distance migrant with virtually the entire population wintering in the western Amazon Basin in South America. Unlike most songbirds, kingbirds frequently migrate during the day when large flocks may be seen in open areas. Their harsh, rapid vocalizations remind me of the flight call of the Yellow Wagtail.
