Thanks for all the information everyone. This pair of Eastern Phoebe's are housemates of ours each spring, and we've always been curious about them, and if they have southern/winter housemates as well.
Thanks! Any idea how far they travel for the winter? I assume this is the same pair we see each spring (they occupy the same nest), and we always wonder where their travels have taken them over the intervening months.
I live in upstate New York, USA. Each spring we welcome a pair of nesting birds who rebuild their previous nest above a downspout on our house. I know very little about birds - we keep about four feeders in our yard and have frequent sightings of a great variety of woodpeckers, finches...
