Western Kingbird

adult bird, flew in from beach. I arrived to find it in high cottonwood half way up Devil's Slide. We approached slowly on foot, got good views through binocs. Noted extent of yellow on belly, and white retrice sides. Looked down for a second and it was gone. Re found seconds later overhead, then turned and went out towards lake. Not seen again. Rain then picked up. First found by Brendan Grube who studied it more to try to eliminate Couch's/Tropical
