The king

With a dark back and white belly the Eastern King Bird is rightly described as wearing a business suit. This bird however is all business, they will show a lot of aggression towards other species including homo-sapiens. During the summer the Eastern Kingbird eats mostly flying insects and maintains a breeding territory that it defends vigorously against all other birds, including some birds of prey. In the winter along the Amazon, however, it has a completely different lifestyle: it travels in flocks and eats fruit.
