Eastern Kingbird

It seems that eastern kingbirds have plenty of insects to eat this year.
Eastern Kingbird,  

A few times, we've noticed the kingbird chasing the heron, much like other birds chase hawks or crows. It dives at it and hits it on the back. Here's one blurry photo of a chase. We also like it because if you enlarge it by clicking on it, you can see a bit of the red on the kingbirds head that is rarely visible. Perhaps he was angry.
