The Eastern Kingbird travels in flocks and can be seen scooping up insects over fields. They are super fast flyers. Another breed difficult to get an in-flight photo. At sunset, their favorite time to feed on insects, their feathers reflect the yellows and reds from the sun and it is easy to mistake their reflected yellow coloring for another breed. They also look very similar to a tree swallow except for the white band at the tip of the tail feathers and the wings are not as long as a swallow.
