Usually we have a couple pair of Western Kingbirds nesting on utility poles in Kearney, but so far I haven't heard or seen any. But today at Wal Mart in Excelsior Springs I heard and saw one WEKI calling and flying in the parking lot. They are probably nesting on one of the parking lot lighting structures. So nice to hear their calls!
