Eastern Kingbird

The Eastern Kingbird is a flycatcher that inhabits mostly fields and open areas. I saw this particular one perched on a cattail on the edge of a marshy pond. Kingbirds are known to be highly aggressive towards nest predators. The summer and winter diets are apparently very different - summer fare consists primarily of insects while winter in South America allows them to be fruit eaters.
