A couple of images from November 28, 2011. The Kingbird was foraging in the Xmas Tree Farm at the southern end of the Reservoir today.
and a new video clip with the Kingbird calling - a single call repeated 3 times.
This 25 second clip is the one call I recorded. The call is repeated as I copied the 5 second clip end to end 5 times. Turn up your speakers and try to listen through the tractor that was working nearby.
This is the best of today's attempt to capture this bird at quite a distance and 1000mm. "Click" on any image below for a larger 1440 x 900 version.
A 2 1/2 minute video clip with the Kingbird flying out and returning to it's preferred hunting perch in the second half.
It made several flights, coming back with a tidbit after each trip. Here it's just swallowed the bug seen in the image above.
Between flights a bit of time to check out the many birders that stopped by.
Another return to the preferred hunting perch.
Just prior to sallying out for another bug.
and back again.
