Emigrant Creek Road - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

Habitat : Grasslands
Food : Insects
Nesting : Tree
Behavior : Flycatching
Conservation : Low Concern

"An eye-catching bird with ashy gray and lemon-yellow plumage, the Western Kingbird is a familiar summertime sight in open habitats across western North America. This large flycatcher sallies out to capture flying insects from conspicuous perches on trees or utility lines, flashing a black tail with white edges. Western Kingbirds are aggressive and will scold and chase intruders (including Red-tailed Hawks and American Kestrels) with a snapping bill and flared crimson feathers they normally keep hidden under their gray crowns."

Emigrant Lake - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

Habitat : Open Woodlands
Food : Insects
Nesting : Cavity
Behavior : Flycatching
Conservation : Low Concern

"With its pale lemon belly and cinnamon tail, the Ash-throated Flycatcher is reminiscent of a desert just before sunset. Its subtle hues help it blend into its surroundings, but notes sputter out of its mouth all morning long, giving away its location. This genteel flycatcher tips its head side to side with seeming curiosity while perched among low oaks and mesquite trees. It is a die-hard bird of dry places that doesn't need to drink water; it gets all it needs from the insects and spiders it eats."
