Activity 4: Not necessarily my favorite bird but I spotted a pair of birds three days ago. Had no idea what they were. Using the ID methods taught in this course I found out they were Eastern Kingbirds. They landed on a Hydrangea Bush just outside my kitchen. So I decided they were about the size of a Robin. They both had the same markings. It did not seem like there was a different between a male and a female. They were a dark grey color with some white markings. They had a white belly and it went all the way up under the chin. They had a very black cap. The best giveaway was the white tips of feathers on the very end of the tails.
I did not hear them so could not ID with a song or call. It was for me a great spot.
