INTERESTING FACTS

In early spring pairs begin a peculiar dance, hovering in unison with outstretched wings and high-pitched calls over a favorite perch. This dance occurs several times a day over several days, over separate sites in an area covering two or three acres. The sites chosen for the dance appear to be the same sites used as hunting perches during the spring and summer.
The Cassin's Kingbird was named after John Cassin, who was a curator at the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences.
They are often found high on a tree, where they sit more quietly than a Western Kingbird.
A group of kingbirds are collectively known as a "coronation", "court", and "tyranny" of kingbirds.
