11/20- Western Kingbird

Today Dad and I went for the Western Kingbird at the Tree Farm in Westport.  The Bird was discovered a week ago by an anonymous birder who posted the sighting on ebird.  When we arrived we waited about 5 minutes before dad spotted the bird in the grass.  For about 15 minutes we watched the bird as it flew around the field, perching in various trees.  A really neat bird- a year bird and a state bird.  It was very bright against the drab November landscape and showed a fair bit of aggressiveness to the ever present Bluebirds.  John Marshall and Randy Given were also present.

Photos below, though crummy.
