Observation details

Continuing bird. First saw a yellow bellied kingbird at the beginning of the greenbelt, south of the drip. Heard distinct thin TWITTERING notes. Then a second bird responded with TWITTERING from the nearby wetland. Quickly, the second bird flew in, and the pair vocalized and interacted, but were then driven off by a Loggerhead Shrike. Good looks with 8x42s, photographs and audio obtained. Both individuals photo'd.
