Without marked individual kingbirds, it is unknown how long a Tropical Kingbird remains here or, if it survives, where it goes afterwards.
However, some may linger or, alternatively, a series of different individuals may be present in the same area with favorable habitat, so that one or more Tropical Kingbirds may be found in a Lincoln Co. area for several months.
For example, as reported from bird notes of the Yaquina Birders & Naturalists' newsletter, one was found between the Hatfield Marine Science Center and Oregon Coast Aquarium on Oct. 6, 2012. There were other records, with the latest records for that area that season were one for the Jan. 1, 2013 Yaquina Bay CBC, a probable one there in February 2013, and one identified there by Wayne Hoffman on 3/4/2013.

The Tropical Kingbird at Newport seemed to be hiding from the wind on the rocks by the shore. It is my understanding that the Birds that wander up the coast are overachievers in the process of post breeding dispersal. Is there any information about whether such birds succeed in returning to there normal range? Would leaving a gift of meal worms help them winter in place?
