Eastern Kingbird

May 29, 2012 in Nearby Landbirds

Eastern Kingbirds can be found in the trees up and down the side of the Merrimack River.  Courting males perform amazing aerial flights to attract a mate.  Nests are built at a range of heights in shrubs or trees, oftern near or over water.  Kingbirds are frequently found perched in the open or on an exposed branch, fence or wire.
