Bill is too long and skinny for any kingbird. I'd call this a Cattle Tyrant.

Not sure what you think not on. That it is or is not a Tropical?

I think not Jellis!

But the tail does match a Tropical. The bird looks like it's in transition?

Wouldn't the bill be bigger on a Tropical?

As seen not just compared to the others, but that the bill almost looks longer then the head is.

I would agree with bayucca that this is a kingbird having seen them myself in Guyana but we can wait for Liam to say for definite.
