We found this Thick-billed Kingbird (Tyrannus crassirostris) just beyond Portal close to the junction where the road to Paradise splits from Cave Creek Canyon Road, Cochise county Arizona on July 20, 2014. While this species is regular in small numbers west of the Huachucas, it is rare east of the Chiricahuas. We had seen a Cassin's just before the road split, and there was a Western a few yards beyond this bird, giving us a Kingbird Trifector within c. 100 yards (we couldn't find a Tropical, though...):
