Abstract
The first documented records of Eastern Kingbird, Tyrannus tyrannus (Aves: Tyrannidae), for Uruguay are reported. The species was recorded 4 times between 1993 and 2016 in southeastern Uruguay. Due to the few records of isolated individuals we propose that the species is a vagrant in Uruguay.
