Eastern Kingbird

Since I walked this path a month ago the water has been drained out of the pond behind this Eastern Eastern Kingbird.

Dragonflies were hovering over the mostly dry pond bed and the Kingbird was taking advantage. He had a nice snack of what looked like an Eastern Pondhawk between these two images. Unfortunately swaying reeds on the bank ruined all images of that!

A chick joined the adult calling to be fed. The adult didn’t seem impressed and soon they swooped off together. Time for the juvenile to catch his own lunch.

The Eastern Kingbird is a perky flycatcher known for being tyrannical. These two entertained me as they called and flitted along a tree line running between two ponds.

There may have been a third one, it was hard to tell the way they were moving around.

At least this one was behaving like a juvenile waiting for food to be brought.

He made a few forays out over the water after bugs but I’m not sure he caught any before getting safely back to his perch.
