Eastern Kingbird

"Can you find this bird?"

There is a great abundance of birds and water foul at Bassett Creek Park.  In order to help park visitors identify the birds a Boy Scout posted signs this past year with pictures and brief descriptors of various birds.  Ironically enough, the birds seem to just love sitting on these "Can you find this bird" signs.  This isn't bad in and of itself, but when they do their duty on the sign, it makes it hard to read.

One of the birds that loves to sign perch is the Eastern Kingbird. It is a far ranging bird, despite it's descriptor as being an east coaster.
