the other day I sat in a marsh trying to get some shots of Warblers.. a robin and a male Cardinal were sitting in a tree on the same branch, and both were flying out and catching bugs in flight.. First time I ever saw them do that, and to have them doing it side by side was even stranger.. I had my camera but was so involved in watching I didnt think to try for a picture.. anyone seen this in either bird before?

I've seen a cardinal catch a bug that was trying to drink out of my hummingbird feeder.
