Eastern Kingbirds (Tyrannus tyrannus) nest in trees near open areas, including urban parks. They reach Kansas City each year around May to breed and raise their young. Around September, they migrate to the Amazon rain forest.
Eastern Kingbirds catch flying insects, such as flies, wasps and beetles, in the air. Read more about the life history of Eastern Kingbirds at allaboutbirds.org.
