I was getting to close to their nest and they did not like it.

Sun on the wrong side as usual but gave a neat light effect.

I was going to say "that's no kingbird!" but of course, its just like no kingbird near me. A quick look in my bird book shows that there are some kingbirds like this one. Do you know what type it is? You haven't filled in your location, so I can't guess based on that.

Either way, they are lovely shots. Very nice capture.

Eric, this appears to be a Western Kingbird. The Eastern Kingbird is colored quite differently.

The distribution of the Western Kingbird is west of the Missisippee (sp?) River so zoomn lives somewhere west of that too...

Thanks for taking a look and the kind remarks.

I live in Boise Idaho. I will have to figure out how to have that show up.

There is a concentration of about 10 kingbirds nesting in a small area by a pond.

I will post some pictures of babies in a nest later. The nest this bird was telling me to get the heck away from.

There is also a Bullocks Oriole in there I have been chasing around for 3 weeks trying to get a good picture of. I have lots of bad pictures of it, sound familiar to anybody, birds are tough.

I was lucky enough to see an Orchard Oriole this year... but never a Bullocks. So if you get a shot please post it!

If you chose "My Account" in the upper right, and then the "profile" button, there is a place to put your state.
