Eastern Kingbird






The Eastern Kingbird is a small but aggressive little bird. They make their living hunting flies and bugs which they catch in the air. They sometimes also eat fruits such as berries.   high-res



The Eastern Kingbird is very aggressive and fearless, when they protect their nest. A good example is our local Osprey nest, and each time an Osprey returns to its nest, passing the Kingbird's nest, the little Kingbird immediately attacks the huge Osprey.   high-res
