Common to North Texas, the Eastern Kingbird frequents roadside fences and wires launching in time to catch unsuspecting insects. They are known to harass crows, hawks or any large bird that ventures to close to their nests. Spunky and adaptable this flycatcher does fine mingling with civilization within it’s own range. They like to build their nest where wires attached to utility poles.
