Eastern Kingbirds: Tyrannus tyrannus at Grasslands

Eastern Kingbirds have a great species name: Tyrannus tyrannus. And aggressive these black and white tyrant flycatchers may be, in defending their food supply or turf, but I usually see them sitting calmly on fence posts or bushes, dark with a bright white fringe on their tail feathers.
