Eastern Kingbird


The kingbird is a very large flycatcher (by flycatchers standards).   

We went on an ‘organzied’ butterfly walk this week. It was sponsored by the Miami County Parks. This hike was at the Stillwater Prairie Reserve.  I always enjoy taking their hikes, and learn a lot from the naturalist that lead them. I will post a few photos from the hike soon. 

So, back to this kingbird. When I first saw him land at the very top of this small tree, I thought it was a swallow. It was a little large, but it looked right. Then it started making so much racket. I guess it was not happy with us, or something. The naturalist pointed out that it was a Kingbird .. I learned something new:).
