Eastern Kingbirds

Day 218 / 365

Why does the bird bring toilet paper to the party?

Because he is a party pooper.

Interesting Fact:  Kingbirds are “passerines,” a taxonomic group commonly referred to as perching birds or songbirds. But kingbirds and other flycatchers are in a different subgroup from true songbirds, and they don’t have nearly as complex voices. Rather than learning their calls they probably perform them innately. The young begin to give adult calls at about two weeks of age.

  1. Fabulous! I have a nest of Western Kingbirds living just outside my bedroom window. Their songs might not be terribly complex, but they are much preferred to the bluejays that also like to come visit!

    • Thank you very much, I appreciate you stopping by and sharing this with us. That is amazing that you have that just outside of your window, I wish I was so lucky. Thank you again. 🙂
