Short Visits Only
A not so frequent visitor of my backyard is the Eastern Phoebe, usually at the beginning of Spring. This bird rarely stay for many days only one or two, and then moves on, fortunately long enough for me to shoot some pictures.
This bird is small bird but his head apparently looks big but it’s because his puffy crest. His head, back and tail are dark gray or black and sometimes a bit brownish in color. His breast and under-parts are white or dirty white.
They eat mostly insects and casually some fruits. I always hope they stay longer to learn more of them and get more pictures.
Next, I have some photos of the Eastern Phoebe for you. Enjoy!
