Couch’s Kingbird

Tyrannus couchii

This bird is nearly identical in appearance to the Tropical Kingbird. Where their ranges overlap, only by hearing it can you be sure of its identity. This bird’s range is from Yucatan in the south and along the gulf coast to southern Texas that can be found year-round. During the summer some birds will range slightly north into Central Texas and then retreat south after breeding.
