Eastern Kingbird at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma

Eastern Kingbirds wait on an open perch and fly out to catch insects in flight, sometimes hovering to pick food off vegetation. They also eat berries and fruit, mainly in their wintering areas.

    I have observed the Eastern Kingbird eating minnows (Mosquito Fish) from a lake in Mississippi. They would either flutter along the water’s edge and pluck them from the water or sit on a weed overhanging the water to fly down and get them.

    I can’t find anywhere in the literature that Eastern Kingbirds eat fish.

    What do you think?
