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.
