Kingbird, Gray bird pictures
445. Tyrannus dominicensis. 9 inches
Differs from the common Kingbird in being larger and gray" above; has black ear coverts, and no white tip to tail.
Like the Kingbird, these are very noisy and pugnacious, and rule their domains with the hand of a tyrant.
After they have mated they quarrel very little among themselves, and often several ma ,y use the same lookout twig from which to dash after passing flies or moths.
Note. - A rapidly repeated, shrill shriek: "pe-che-ri," " pe-che-ri."
Nest. - Rather more shabbily built but of the same materials as those used by our common Kingbird. Placed in all kinds of trees, but more often in mangroves, where they are commonly found. Three to five pinkish-white eggs, profusely blotched with brown (1.00 x .72).
Range. - West Indies and Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Winters in the West Indies and Central America.
