I was in the kitchen making potato salad when I heard a lot of cheeping going on outside.  The cats were at the patio door watching the creatures responsible for all that cheeping and chirping.  It was a family of king birds — a momma and four babies.  (No doubt the cats would like to have made a meal of at least one of them.)

I took a video of them from the patio door up in the dining room.  M went out and sat on the deck to video them.  His is much better than mine with a shot of the mother coming up to feed the babies (at the very beginning).  He also follows the momma bird over to the wildflower meadow.

Here it is:

And here are a couple of  still shots:

Not the best shots in the world, but the best I could do.  That’s why I have a new camera on my wish list.  A better zoom lens would be fab.
