"Eastern Kingbird," Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The eastern kingbird is a large tyrant flycatcher native to North America. Adults are grey-black on the upperparts with light underparts; they have a long black tail with a white end and long pointed wings. They have a red patch on their crown, seldom seen. They are of average size for a kingbird, at 1923 cm (7.59.1 in), 3338 cm (1315 in) across the wings and weighing 3355 g (1.21.9 oz). The call is a high-pitched, buzzing and unmusical chirp, frequently compared to an electric fence.
