Very nice shots, I have a pair in the back yard but never got a good shot of one.

Those are some fine shots - great backgrounds as well as great details in the birds. It took lots of patience to catch a Kingbird sitting still!

Hi Ed,

Very nice!!!

I've got exactly one shot of a Kingbird, and it's from about 200 ft @ 135mm, so it's barely identifiable.

I'm still getting used to shooting against the sky again. . . something I seem to have to relearn every year

I was using an AF 540 FGZ, with a Better Beamer flash extender, on high speed fill flash to brighten the foreground.
