Eastern Kingbirds

While watching Osprey pair, Bella & Beau, yesterday for a few minutes, directly in front of my balcony, landing on top of a sailboat mast, I was offered an awesome, quick photo opportunity of an Eastern Kingbird.

Not an often seen perch for an Eastern Kingbird, I’d think.

And then, poof, he was back in flight!

To my neighbors:  George, do you recognize the top of your mast? 😊

 

Yesterday’s above photo op reminded me of the Eastern Kingbirds I had captured at Blackwater NWR several weeks ago in a more natural perch setting.

Sweet shot!

 

I didn’t alter the next photograph and loved how it turned out.

  1. I love kingbirds. We have a nesting pair in our yard and I have never discovered where they nest. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures!
