I've been trying to get a definitive ID on this bird from my reference material but I can't pin it down. Taken in Florida in March of this year. It has a kingbird "feel" to it, but I just don't know. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks and Cheers, Dan

Eastern Phoebe would be my guess, although it looks too yellowish on my monitor for that time of year. Is this the only exposure you got of it?

I would agree with Penolta on Eastern Phoebe, but I don't think it's necessarily too early for the yellow. I'm further north than Florida and this little fellow arrived in late March or early April. This shot was taken on April 20. (Our front porch is the annual summer residence for these folks.)

Thanks guys - this is the only other photo of it I have. It didn't linger on its perch - a couple of pics and it was gone. Ilooked at the Easter Phoebe but thought my bird had too much yellow to qualify, although the head looked right. Cheers, Dan
