Eastern Kingbird perched on branch with red berries

I encountered this Eastern Kingbird perched on a branch covered with red berries in spring in Florida. These distinctive birds are truly entertaining to watch as they perch and wait for insects to fly by. They capture large insects in flight and then return to their perch where they batter the insect into submission and devour it whole. The Eastern Kingbird supplements its diet with berries. These handsome birds are widespread in the United States. The Eastern Kingbird migrates in large groups to South America, where they spend the winter.
