Tropical Kingbird range

The Tropical Kingbird is one of the most southern kingbirds seen in North America. Only the tropical southern Thick-billed Kingbird is more difficult to locate. This kingbird can be difficult to identify because of its similarities to other yellow breasted kingbirds seen in the southern regions of Arizona and Texas. It has been reported seen as a rare visitor in Cuba.
