Tropical Kingbird

Left-Click to enlarge pictures.

Who would ever expect to see a Tropical Kingbird, whose nothernmost boundaries are South Texas and South Arizona in Cameron Parish, Louisiana?

Gary Broussard's discovery of three Tropical Kingbirds in Cameron Parish, Louisiana was superb. Excellent find Gary and thanks for sharing on labird giving an opportuniy for others to witness! I didn't see the other two Tropcial Kingbirds but was ecstatic to see one of them. Its notched tail and long, thick bill separtate it from other Kingbirds.

Experienced and avid birder Danny Dobbs was present and spotted a Common Nighthawk resting on a limb.

Once you click on the picture to enlarge it you can see the whiskers at the base of the Common Nighthawk's beak. You can also tell the white bars on its wing are not close to the end of its wing distinguishing it from the Lesser Nighthawk.
