Eastern Phoebe

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.
