The underparts are yellow with a greenish tint to the upper breast and a white throat. The black bill is short and broad. This species resembles the Tropical Kingbird, but is shorter, stockier, and has a shorter bill. The call is a loud squealing jweeez, quite different from the Kingbird's twittering.
