Observation details

The bird was at the parking area. It flew west though and as of this moment has not been refound. I believe it was on that wire for 2 minutes. I checked my pic time stamps, about 50 seconds between first and last shot. And then me seeing the Kingbird originally and driving a bit closer for a better look and pics if needed. The pics show the larger bill than an Eastern Kingbird. The one pic of it gray is the look I had when I got closer. This pic shows the dark mask. The other pics were badly exposed by me - the beginning photographer. After the last pic, I watched it again, it took off. I noticed no white in the tail. Sides or tip. I stuck around the parking lot area to see if it would return. No. The pics were taken from my car side window. I angled my car to get the shots.
