Just a quick note regarding a pair of Tropical Kingbirds at the Dub Day Arena and Park off Hwy 329 in Rankin. This is a very small park with cultivated pines, elms, cottonwoods, mulberries, pecans etc. next to a rodeo arena. The kingbirds were in the cottonwoods at the center of the park adjacent to the green stage and picnic area. I believe they have a nest but I'm unsure of the status of it, and it's awfully late in the summer for Tyrannids to have an active nest. I will follow up in the coming week.
I was also surprised to have an adult Zone-tailed Hawk hunting in the park and a Least and Willow Flycatcher along the eastern boundary fence line.
