Don't you just love it when you happen to be in the right place at the right time to witness something special? I'd just pulled up into our driveway and stepped out of the truck when I heard the tell-tale chatter of the Kingbirds. I heard them earlier in the day while I was out working in the yard, but I was never able to get a good look at them, they were always slightly obscured by tree foliage. I had brought my camera and tripod out anyway, just in case I saw them, and to warm up the lens so it wouldn't fog up as soon I brought it from the A/C cooled interior to the muggy as hell outdoors. And there they were, right over the driveway! I love Kingbirds (I love most birds, actually), they're so full of personality. Very talky too! I grabbed the camera, which was still right there in the garage and managed to get a few shots of the two parents feeding two juveniles before they disappeared back into the denser tree canopy. I hope you enjoy them...
