Egg on my face! Thanks to Ed Hess for the correction on this species. This is an EASTERN KINGBIRD.

I am not one who tries to get flight shots of such a tiny bird as the tree Swallow. They are fast and hard to get focused. All this said, I was in the backyard a few days ago and saw several of these birds flying around. It was a relatively quiet morning and I decided to give it a try. It was all over in less than a second. One shot…. I got it!

Happy birding!
