[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tyrannus melancholicus
(Vieilliot, 1819)

Their breeding habitat is semi-open areas with trees and shrubs, including gardens and roadsides. Tropical Kingbirds(Tyrannus melancholicus) like to observe their surroundings from a prominent open perch, usually high in a tree, undertaking long sally flights to acrobatically catch insects in mid-air, sometimes hovering to pick food off vegetation.
They also eat some fruit foraging for these even in disturbed habitat.

These birds aggressively defend their territory against intruders, even much larger birds such as Magnificent Frigatebirds, toucans, caracaras or hawks.

Conservation status - least concern.
