At Wilkins' Field today in the grass.  I didn't hear a call or see a male with it to help with the identification.  Pretty sure it is a warbler, but can't seem to find one that looks exactly right.…Continue

Eastern Kingbird

"Hi Dwayne, my first thought was berries but, since they are insect eaters, I assumed egg sacks.  That will teach me to do a bit more research first."

Eastern Kingbird

Seen on the North Edge of Nevers Island on the Saint John River near Fredericton. The flash of white in the bill is what caught my eye from a distance. I think they may be spider egg sacks.

"Very cool, my first thought was those white berries...dog berry? I think.  This would be the second recent pic of a kingbird eating fruit if so.   http://birdingnewbrunswick.ca/forum/topics/eastern-kingbird-eating-blueberries"

It was nice meeting you as too! I don't think I took another photo after leaving you. The side trail is definitely worth further investigation...

Shawn the Chestnut sided Warbler should be found almost anywhere by now, the Bay-breasted Warbler  should be around also but in real tall evergreen trees and  with a pond or stream nearby. By the way I was off Sunset Dr. in WIlkins abandoned airfields on Monday, Fredericton North
