Tyrannus or kingbirds, is a genus of large insect-eating tyrant flycatchers in the Tyrannidae family.

They prefer semi-open or open areas. These birds wait on an exposed perch and then catch insects in flight. They have long pointed wings and large broad bills.

These birds tend to defend their breeding territories aggressively, often chasing away much larger birds. The genus name means "tyrant".
