Eastern Kingbird

I really like the Eastern Kingbird. They have lovely markings and are enjoyable (and easy) to watch because they remain in the same general area for awhile. They perch and watch. Fly off for a bug and then return to the same (or nearly the same) perch.

While they usually strike a rather stately pose, as the last photo shows, they are quite capable of an occasional goofy look.


  1. I love those snow white feathers on the breast! That last shot is a cute pose.

  2. Such a cutie. His tummy almost looks like it's covered in fur rather than feathers.

  3. Fantastic photos of the E. Kingbird! We saw scads of these recently @ the wildlife refuge near Hutchinson, KS.
