The King Bird

I took these pictures of what I believe to be a King Bird in the trees of my yards and down the street recently.  The Kingbird has a buff to white under-belly with grey-brown feathers on its back.  There is a tip of white on the tail feathers.  The Kingbird loves catching gnats and flies to eat.  The Kingbirds here swoop all around the Hickories, Oaks, Dogwoods, and Walnut trees.  We had quite a few in a visiting flock here about 2 weeks ago with fewer in the recent days.  We have had bad weather here in the past few days with very heavy rains.  We also have many more leaves on our trees week by week.  It is getting tougher to spot the birds as many are nesting or are hiding behind leaves.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Neat birds, Linda… I haven’t seen them –but unless birds come in or near our feeders, I usually don’t see them… Great pictures though. I posted some birdies today.
