Thick-billed kingbird        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Thick-billed kingbirds (appropriately named, as the bill is very robust) are a Mexican species that enters the US mainly in southeastern Arizona and adjacent New Mexico.   They are noisy and conspicuous, like most kingbirds.   These were photographed in Portal, Arizona.
