Gray Kingbird

Length 22-25cm (8.5-9″). Fairly common summer visitor to the Cayman Islands. Often in large flocks. Prefers open habitat, dry coastal shrubland, and urban areas. Often perches on telegraph wires, taking insect prey on the wing. Highly territorial; aggressively defending its territory. Not to be confused with our similar, resident Loggerhead Kingbird.
