Eastern Kingbird revisited...


I posted one pic from this section a few days ago.  Thought I would show some of the others here.  They usually do no cooperate...


I have always been lucky to get one shot...


Let alone one to sit and shake it off and scratch an itch...


and then settle back down.

I know its tail is cut off in a couple shots but I am still happy to have caught the gleam in its eyes.

Good capture. We have Western Kingbirds in Eastern Wa. The are so pretty---similar to the Eastern but with a soft yellow tummy.
Thanks for visiting my blog

A bit of a tail cut off doesn't take away from how fantastic these are. I'm never able to zoom in far enough to get very good pictures of birds.

Such a pretty bird and great shots Rose!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Excellent shots. I agree that these birds usually don’t wait to have their picture taken.In case my comment shows up twice, it's because i wasn’t sure the first one went through.

Birds never cooperate with me.

What a precious bird. I always love your bird photos, Rose. And that one of him bending his head is so funny. I think he was scratching himself hahaha.
