Round and round they flew, the rush of the air as they zoomed past the ears. A slight dip, rise into the air, twist and turn to make another run. The birds were relentless in their pursuit of the flies. The show went on for minutes. It was like I wasn’t there, they were so intent on the insects.
I was amazed at their skill in the air. They could of given lessons to the Thunderbirds, snowbirds or the Blue Angels. They were so precise in their turns and catching bugs.
I didn’t have an SLR I used a point and shoot and guessed where they would be and snapped. Out of 8 shots 7 came out pretty good. i even caught one’s reflection.
They have neat chevrons on their wings and are decent sized. They are king birds.
