Nice, I really like the sharp eye and wing blur in the first one.

Tack sharp! Beautiful photos! I really like the first on because it puts me right in the action! Great Job.

The first 2 look good, the last 2 are even better. You save the best for the last.

Nice shots, we have one of these little guys flying around our yard and we never could figure what kind of bird it is.
Kingbird, thanks for that info.

Very nice shots of the Eastern Kingbird. Our Western Kingbird has a yellow breast and lighter grey head, but otherwise is very similar.
Well done.
