Hard to believe how time has flown, but the16th DG annual photo contest has begun! Find the details here. Best wishes to all the entrants!!!


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.
