Kingbird on a Wire

The 'English' call them Kingbirds and the Native Americans called them the 'Chief' bird. Both groups did this convergently - these birds are tough characters! Actually a tyrant flycatcher, its scientific name is Tyrannus tyrannus - so tough they named him twice. They will literally whip birds 50 x their size - no joke.

This one was spotted at one of our substations this week.
