Used habitat types have large, widely spaced cottonwood trees with greater grass cover, while unused habitat types have smaller, more closely spaced trees with less grass cover. In open country of the west, the Western Kingbird is often seen perched on roadside fences and wires, flying out to snap up insects -- or to harass ravens, hawks, or other large birds that stray too close to the kingbird's nest. This large flycatcher sallies out to capture flying insects from conspicuous perches on trees or … In western Washington, they are rare breeders, with breeding confirmed in Pierce, Skagit, and Whatcom Counties.
