POWERED BY MERLIN

Pale kingbird, white below and gray above with a darker face mask. Most similar to Eastern Kingbird but Gray Kingbird has lighter gray upperparts, a longer bill, and lacks white tail tips. Primarily a Caribbean species with limited range in U.S.; found around the edge of dense woodland, especially near the coast. Also seen in more suburban areas. Often perches conspicuously on a snag, treetop, or powerline. Feeds on insects. Listen for its high-pitched twittering calls.
