CLOSED: Bird ID

Melbourne, FL

This bird landed in the top of my backyard neighbors' tall tree. I could tell it looks a bit different from most birds I am used to seeing. This pic is heavily cropped. I thought maybe one of the bird experts might be able to ID it.

Looks like an Eastern Kingbird....not a bird-feeder critter (eats bugs). They'll be migrating out very soon.

Thanks, Ned...never have seen one of those before!

Heres the page on them; look under Cool Facts to see some interesting reading on them.

Thanks Pelletory. After Ned identified the bird I googled it and checked out a few links. One thing it likes to do is perch in the very tops of trees!

Just like Hawks; the better to see the other birds.

Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

Yep, Eastern Kingbird.

After large insects, rather than other birds, though.
