Tropical Kingbird

Tyrannus melancholicus

Notes:

Is it a Tropical Kingbird, Tyrannus melancholicus? The trees are full of this cute birds, medium size, right now, most of them fly in couples, they chase away Tucans, Oropendulas, Falcons etc....defending their young in the huge tree on the field, across my House.
