Tropical/Couch's Kingbird

The other two guys were watching this bird on a wire with a GRKI when I arrived but had only seen it from the back. It flew over us interacting with a GRKI and the yellow up to the upper breast and gray-brown tail lacking white outer web were noted. Also the bird seem only marginally smaller than the GRKI, something the other guys had also noted when it was perched with the GRKI. They also described it as having a slight shorter bill than the GRKI, not markedly smaller as WEKI would be. Likely a TK but no vocalizations were heard. K Fowler got a couple of photos in flight but they were blurry and of little use.

These data were gathered as part of the Florida Keys Hawkwatch (FKH) migration monitoring project by official FKH 2016 counters (vetted and experienced migration monitoring field technicians: Cameron Cox, Kendrick Fowler , Christopher Payne, Rafael Galvez, Mark Hedden). For more information about project history, protocols and methods visit the projects official website: floridakeyshawkwatch.wordpress.com. For a complete yearly report, email taspublisher@gmail.com. All avian species as part of this project are monitored from two sites in the Middle Keys. At Long Key State Park, by morning flight surveys and transect counts each morning from September 4 through the end of October, during which all detections are documented by distance, habitat use, behavior and number of individuals using standardized protocols. All avian species are monitored from Curry Hammock State Park (CHSP) during that same time period, in a daily sequence of 7 to 8 point counts, using methods standardized for the site and in use since 1996. Counts take place from 09:00 to 16:00 DST, and all bird detections are documented for species and number of individuals. Raptors are additionally documented to include age, sex and any other plumage or morphological details for each individual when detectable, in addition to flight direction, lateral distance, flight height and flight path; only southbound totals for the entire duration of the daily count per site are included here (CHSP minimum 7 hours each day). Every hour, wind direction and speed, temperature, sky conditions, flight details and observer information is logged into standardized forms. Data are carefully entered into eBird after being scrutinized and reviewed on paper data forms by the official technicians only.
