Noticed a small bird attack an American Crow in a distant tree and took a few shots. Viewing the images on the back of the camera I discovered that it was an Eastern Kingbird and that the red crown, that I have never seen, was clearly displayed.
Great pics. I have never seen the red on a kingbird either.
Thanks for finding the red crown. Only two of my many bird books mention the crown and only the National Geographic Song and Garden Birds of NA show a picture of one with the crown exposed. Now I have reason to keep looking at that stately bird. Great find on your part.
