I also had an Eastern Kingbird who allowed me to get close for a few photos on Sunday!  Did I mention that Wolf Run is one of my favorite places in the park to visit??

  3. That is a handsome bird. Nice photos!

    I have to tell you- every time I open your blog and see those waxwings on your side bar I think they look like two guys wearing big sunglasses!

    Did you get close to the kingbird with your camera lens, or with your hiking boots?

    @ winterwoman – I had 400mm on the whole time and then slowly walked right up to the bird! He didn’t seem to care that I was getting close at all!

    Love the kingbirds–I swear I have them following me. It seems everywhere I go, a kingbird is there. I don’t mind though! 🙂

  13. How obliging of the Kingbird to sit on a dead tree for you! Great pictures. I have a good shot of the back end of one yesterday as it ate berries in a leafy tree yesterday. I see them often perched very high up.

  18. Great shots, Monarch! Have you ever seen the red on the kingbird’s head? You have to go see these pictures – they are unbelievable and not photoshopped!

  19. He seems so perfect in your photo. I want to poke him (gently of course) in the belly and see if he moves!

    Kingbirds are so handsome. I love to hear them calling to one another. They are very vocal this time of year.

    Wow, these are great photos!

    1 July 2008 at 7:31 pm

  22. Great photos – Kingbirds are soo active it’s tough to get a decent picture. My local kingbird acts as the local siren chasing all the hawks off.

  23. @ Bethany – I couldn’t think of anything better than Kingbirds following me! LOL! I wouldn’t mind also!
    @ Ruth – I saw another kingbird today that I thought about photographing! They are just so much fun to photograph!
    @ Marty – they do match well!
    @ Joan – Thanks
    @ Birdfreak – they sure are! Thanks
    @ Adam – thanks
    @ Birdgirl – thanks and I have seen the red before! Actually I have photographed the red but they were with my slide film!
    @ Shelley – thanks and I am sure it would have moved! LOL
    @ Lisa – They sure are and love seeing them . . . means summertime!
    @ Pam – Thanks
    @ Owlman – thanks and these guys are not that bad to photograph but they do love going after the hawks!

  24. Handsome guy, isn’t he?

    1 July 2008 at 9:33 pm

  25. Nice bird! We call them Kingburgers. Because we’re silly. 🙂

    1 July 2008 at 11:58 pm

  26. @ Birdlady – thanks and sure is!
    @ Rurality – thanks and kingburgers is a great name!

    2 July 2008 at 11:28 pm

  28. I’m just going to have to visit Wolf Run one of these days. If it is your favorite place it must be full of birds!
