Eastern Kingbird

Tyrannus tyrannus


Two first-year Eastern Kingbirds that have recently fledged from their nest. These birds look much like adult birds, but they have shorter tails that have not yet fully grown.


Found in a black willow tree close to a broad, shallow pond with an abundance of wetland vegetation.


These were two of at least three (perhaps four) fledglings that were seen moving about in this tree. At least one adult bird visited them while we watched as the fledglings clumsily changed perches.

I've seen Kingbirds here in New Mexico as well, ours have a yellow breast with a grey head and back. This is a lovely shot of the pair, nice photo!!!
