We decided it would be best to arrive before first light, so we were up at 4:45am this morning, out the door by 5:15 and on site at 6am! Around 6:25 this morning, the Kingbird woke up, and announced its presence, and everyone was very satisfied! This is an absolutely remarkable bird to be seen in Ontario. I was reminiscing how 2 winters ago, when Mike, my Dad and I were southern California we twitched one which was wintering in San Diego - needles to say, I never thought I'd be seeing one here in Ontario!
Here are some pics and a short video of the bird (listen for its distinctive call note):
Attached below is print screen shot of the distribution for this species from eBird.
From what I understand, there are single records from Colorado and British Columbia. The species also seems to be casual in Texas, and California.
