Tropical Kingbird: Carlsbad 28Jan 2018

Tito Gonzalez
 

I observed what appears to be a TROPICAL KINGBIRD in Carlsbad late this afternoon, 28Jan 2018. The bird was associating with a group of CAKI on Pear Tree Drive near the intersection with Mulberry Ct. Most of the time, it was in a Sycamore tree SW of intersection. This location is just east of the Seascape Apartments (known Hotspot). In fact, the kingbirds all moved to Eucalyptus trees along the eastern border of Seascape Apartments as the sun set, presumably to roost. Photos are included in ebird report:
