Eastern Kingbird

Kingbirds draw their name from their fierce and aggressive nature. They will defend their territory and nest to the point of riding on the back of a hawk beating on it's head as it flies. I see them chasing the big birds all the time down at the river along with red-winged blackbirds. They are maybe just a little smaller than a robin and are members of the tyrant flycatcher family of birds.
