Subject: [sbcobirding] thirty + Cassin's Kingbirds
In recent weeks, I have seen only a pair of them near my mother's home.
The other day I saw six. This morning there are more than 30 individual
birds and they are flocking around an old ivy vine that has been allowed to
grow wild. At first I thought they were eating insects. They are eating the
ivy berries! One American Robin, a Northern Mockingbird, several House
Finches, European Starlings and a single California Towhee were all
gathered back there with the kingbirds, gorging on berries. I have never
seen so many kingbirds in one location before! In Crestview Terrace,
