Two of three juveniles, travelling with the parent birds, stopped for a break and to regroup with another family of kingbirds who arrived this morning. These birds used to nest here but haven`t for the past two summers.. I have really missed them as they are great protectors of not only their own, but all the smaller birds who nest in their area. These birds are an absolute pleasure to be around with their soft buzzing sounds and friendly manner..

Due to the high winds yesterday I edited out some blurry branches that were very distracting to this image..
