What a treat it was to see this Eastern Kingbird at our bird bath her on Cape Cod. We saw our first eastern Kingbird about a month ago at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. We had never seen one before.
So now to see one in our own backyard is really cool!
The Eastern Kingbird is often seen perched on a treetop waiting to catch an insect in mid-air. They also pick food items off the ground, especially in cooler weather when many insects don’t fly.
