Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe)
Is that dental floss this phoebe has in it's mouth? Gotta love what birds find to build their nests with!
Another phoebe with a mouthful!
Apparently some phoebes have been back in Ontario for a month already so they must be fairly hardy songbirds. They are flycatchers so I've been wondering where they have been finding flies.
I LOVE the phoebe's song in spring and summer. As you can see here, they are comfortable about perching on fences. This phoebe was waiting for me to leave so it could work on its nest
Secret nesting spot?
Don't worry little Phoebe. I'll never tell where your nest is.
I am joining Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE
so sweet and pretty. could you send me a couple of these little sweeties? we have an overabundance of flies...
It's that time of year when they find a mate, build a nest and start a family.
PS: In my neighbourhood there's hundreds of little black flies. They look something like a mosquito but smaller. I have seen the robins eating them.
I do think that is dental floss amazing how that beautiful bird can find that. I love there song. Great shots. B
It's so nice to see what they capture. They really are little darlings.
I have seen then at Shaw's Maple Syrup bush in April. They are very early returnee. Lovely shots.
Looks like nesting time...finally a true sign of spring!
So cute! wonderful pictures!
I wish i could get shots like this.
Great photos of the phoebe. It's always fun to watch when the birds start building their nests.
Around here, I've seen long hairs from our horses' tails in robin and swallow nests.
The phoebe is one of my favorite birds. They are just so cute! I love how you captured these at work with their building materials. :)
I've never heard of a Phoebe. A very appealing little bird, working on its nest. Thanks for introducing me.
i adore these little birds. they nest in our barn several times thru the summer.
What a strong nest you could build with dental floss!
Busy little one,so gorgeous!
What lovely little birds! The nests around my farm are well lined with soft goose feathers and fur from the goats. :-)
Your posts are filled with so much JOY - Thanks . . . you make this camera thing look easy . . (mark of a professional)
Good shots when you can catch the bird "in the act". Is that phoebe nesting in a building?
Amazing photos!! I used to throw the lint from the dryer outside for the birds to use in their nests.
So sweet! Gotta get ready for babies!
they do pick up lots of things for nesting, great shots
Great photos. Fantastic to catch the birds all carrying nesting material.
Urocze zdjęcia pracowitego ptaszka budującego domek dla swoich dzieci. Pozdrawiam.
Lovely photos of the bird busy building the house for their children. Yours.
A great serie of photos!
It is amazing what birds find to build their nests with. Nice series of shots.
It is neat to watch them collecting material for their nest. Cute shots of the Phoebe!
I enjoy watching birds collect things for their nests. The look so industrious.
Awwww, she is absolutely precious, and it really does look like dental floss!
Great shots of the adorable bird and it does look like dental floss.
Sweet little birds. Beautiful photos!!
What a little cutie pie!
It looks so tiny, terrific captures!
It does look like they are gathering nesting materials.
Cute little builder.
Sweet critter, making good use of our waste. Nice.
Nice looking bird - and I think their name sounds so much better than "flycatcher'!
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Wow! I love that first pic!
I just got my feeders up again this year after a year of having no safe place (from wildlife and domestic cats) to hang them. So I'm enjoying your wonderful bird shots and hope I get some soon!
Cute little birds.
Great and awesome! =) It's not easy to photograph small birds moving that fast, but you made it! :) nice to see how they collect materials for their nests! :)
Eastern Phoebes, so pretty. I introduced one also this week. They are living so close to our property, but I have to seek them out~
it is so nice to see them building a nest. Gorgeous shots, especially the first one. :)
Such sweet little birds!
