  1. Remember a short time ago we were talking about little birds harassing eagles and I said I had a special one in my files. I found it and take a look at this, two photos of a pair of kingbirds and in the first FF photo take a good look at the V the eagles wings have formed as it is in flight and one more kingbird trailing it. Now look at the blow up and what do you see??? Can you believe this??? I know the photos are not good as I took them from over 500 feet and in flight but they do tell a story that many would not believe.

    Holy cow! Wasn't it Lyndon Johnson who said that it is better to have your enemies inside the tent looking out than outside looking in or something to that effect? That Kingbird is most definitely keeping his "enemy" in plain sight. Very interesting Lou!
