July 14, 2015: Eastern Kingbird

I know of at least 2 Eastern Kingbird nests.  This one is located in a mulberry tree, near the Upland Trail's north trailhead.  These hungry nestlings are waiting to be fed.  Soon an adult arrives with a Common Green Darner.  The parent tried to stuff this large dragonfly down one throat, then another.  Finally, the adult was able to get one nestling to accept the dragonfly. (Both are digiscoped photographs.) 6/29/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
