Kingbirds, pictures of Kingbirds

There are six different species of Kingbirds seen in Cuba. The Gray Kingbird and the Loggerhead Kingbird are the most common. The Giant Kingbird is native only to Cuba. Whereas, the Tropical Kingbird, a vagrant from Mexico and South America, and the Eastern Kingbird and Western Kingbird are seen as migrants from North America.

Kingbirds are feisty birds, who will protect their territories against all sizes of birds. They are often seen dive bombing the backs of crows and hawks to drive them away from their nesting areas. It is typical to see these birds perched on service lines along roads and highways or on top of trees. They use these locations to hunt for flies and insects, where they are able to pick them out of the air as they fly by.
