- Comments: "A flycatcher along the railroad tracks caught our attention. Brown feathers in the wing were retained from a previous feather generation while the inner primaries and the tertials were new feathers. The head was pale gray and the bill was long, unlike the nearby Cassin’s Kingbird, whose bill was stubby and deep at the base. That it was a Western Kingbird was confirmed by the blackish tail, ashy-white throat and upper breast below which was yellow lower breast and belly."
