    Note the bristle-like feathers at the base of the bill, typical of members of the flycatcher family. These are known as "rictal bristles" and may help catching insect prey in mid-air and/or keep debris out of the birds' eyes. Say's Phoebe is primarily a migrant and winter visitor to this area...

    Say's Phoebe with prey

    A little hard to see because of the low light, but he/she just caught a snack. It was perched for a few moments on a bush, then suddenly dove down to grab a bite to eat.

    More additions to the trip list on that last, short walk before take-off. This Say's Phoebe looked a bit darker than others I've seen before. Perhaps sooty from city living? Or maybe sooty-coloured ones have better survival rates in the city while the more straw-colored ones do better in the...

    I was just zooming in on this Say's Phoebe, which was standing on a fence post at a little used parking spot along the tour route 'round the Bosque, when another car pulls in, right up to the bird's post, scaring him off of course. Then these folks pile out of the car and ask me if there are any...

    Hi Folks, Gina captured this little bird on the laundry hand rail this morning i Green Valley, Southern Arizona with her Olympus Pen. It is a giant crop, using 10% or less of original. For the size of the crop I'm surprised with the quality. We have never seen one before & ID'd it from a...
