Western Kingbirds can be found in open areas, perching on branches, wires, and fence posts. They hunt from the perch and fly out to catch insects such as wasps, bees, beetles, grasshoppers, flies, caterpillars, spiders, and millipedes. They will also eat fruit and berries. Western Kingbirds are widespread and can be found west of the Mississippi, in the U.S., southern Canada, and northern Mexico. They have a distinct black tail with a narrow white edge. I found this Western Kingbird in the Verde Valley area in northern Arizona.
