Eastern Phoebe, spotted while drinking a beer on the front lawn with my husband yesterday afternoon.
I have been trying to get a photo of this bird (actually, I think there are two of them) for a few days. I was pretty sure it was some kind of flycatcher, but not sure which one.
Got the shot. Looked up local flycatchers online. It’s a phoebe.
One of our most familiar eastern flycatchers, the Eastern Phoebe’s raspy “phoebe” call is a frequent sound around yards and farms in spring and summer. These brown-and-white songbirds sit upright and wag their tails from prominent, low perches.
I will get more, better photos too, I hope! This is my Backyard Bird #50.
