Thanks, Lori Bragg: The entry in All About Birds: Eastern Kingbird matches your identification. It's a beautiful creature; one I can't remember noticing in my now expired three-score-and-ten in Adair County, KY.

Birds of Kentucky: ID of Airport Bird? It's Eastern Kingbird

2012-06-10 - Columbia/Adair County, KY Airport - Photo by Ed Waggener. Can anyone send the ID of this bird? It was having a great day, but staying a little too far away from me for a good eye-ring photo with the point and shoot used. From one angle the white-breast appeared an iridescent lime, so I can't be sure the color is right.It was perched on the fence between The Pines at Lindsey Wilson and the Columbia/Adair County Airport when the photo was taken this past week. -EW. Lori Bragg identifies the bird as an Eastern Kingbird in the accompanying letter.
