    Details: The first kingbird I saw was between the zoo and the third platform; I recorded this bird vocalizing (the vocalizations are consistent with tropical, ruling out Couch's with certainty). Up until today, I have not heard vocalizations from the tropical kingbird in the handful of times I have seen it in the last month. So when the kingbird started vocalizing today, quite often and loudly, it struck me as odd. Why the change?

    On my way back to the parking lot, there was another tropical kingbird in one of the sycamores between the first and second platform. I didn't think the tropical kingbird had passed by me on my walk toward the parking lot, so I began thinking there were two, but I didn't really feel like walking back to the third platform to test that hypothesis.

    When I was about to get into my car, I heard tropical kingbird vocalizations emanating from the water between the parking lot and island. When I looked out with my binoculars, I saw two tropical kingbirds flying together over the water vocalizing at each other. The breasts were bright yellow, the bills were long, and the vocalizations were right for this species. The appearance of a second kingbird today may explain why they began vocalizing.
