The Western of the Kingbirds is the prettier if you like yellow. The white breast and dark feathers of the Eastern Kingbird has a formal appearance. Both abound in N.E. Colorado and can often be seen at traffic intersections chasing insects. We have many flycatchers and, unfortunately, too many of them look alike.
