These birds always make it easier for me. Small birds drive me crazy but Phoebe’s like to sit on branches that hang over the water. Usually right where I am shooting large birds.
Whenever I see one I am standing on the banks of a swamp. This means minimal chasing and I can usually get a large number of shots.
Eastern Phoebe’s are the only fly catcher that winter in the southern US. They also have a problem with the larger Cowbirds laying eggs in their nests.
