OK it's just almost impossible to look at this photo and not put words into these Eastern kingbirds' mouths! Or beaks, as the case may be. There seems to be some pleading going on, but mom (or dad?) isn't falling for it. What a wonderful image showing the personality of these little tyrants (I'm not judging ... the Latin name for the species is Tyrannus tyrannus) in beautiful detail.
