I'm working from home today since I'm sick, and saw that the kingbird was still around. I decided to take an early lunch and see if I could find it; which I did. Fortunately, my hacking and wheezing didn't scare it off. The bird is making the rounds at the sheep pen with the electric fence around it, sallying out to catch things, or onto the ground to get grasshoppers. It's gorging pretty good, hopefully, to fuel up for a flight south.
I'll post a gallery of photos later...I went a little crazy and got 800+ photos that I need to sort through. I figure I'll probably never see another in Massachusetts so I should use my cameras buffer & high frame-rate for something.
