The Eastern Kingbird can be seen in the eastern and Midwest states and central Canada. This was my first sighting, as a group was migrating through the area. The white band across the tail tip easily identifies them. They were in their normal habitat of wood edges, river groves, farms, orchards, roadsides, fencerows, and wires. They like to harass crows and hawks, and this is the reason I saw them as they were chasing some crows, and making noise.
