Little birds are hard to catch in flight as they move so darned fast. Strong winds one day last week had this guy struggling and slowed him down enough to let me get a picture.
The Western Kingbird is common across much of the western United States in the summer. These colorful little birds can be quite aggressive and are known to even chase after raptors. I actually have a pretty cool sequence from last week of one chasing a bald eagle I will share later.
