yelow-bellied bird pair in Durango CO

by Ed
(Durango, CO)

I thought they were Cedar Waxwings at first, but too many missing features.


Pale yellow belly, gray top and wings, male and female appear identical as they guard their cup-shape nest.
Cone shaped bill. Slight darker around eyes.

No crest as Waxwing -- smooth gray head.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Western Kingbird !!

Beautiful pair watching carefully over their nest.

Great watchdogs and displays to divert humans!
