    Little bird for bird watchers

    While taking my just finished quilt out side to hang on the line for pictures this little charmer was waiting to have a portrait taken. A pair has been here for about two weeks. They come every year and nest near by but I haven't found the nest yet!

    I understand it isn't the greatest picture but what do you bird lovers think? When it sits anywhere it likes to flick its tail.

    PHOBE, yes or no or what do you think?

    yes, its an eastern phoebe. Here's a quote from enature.com. " Squat-bodied flycatcher with understated plumage. Perched bird often pumps forked tail up and down, sometimes with a swaying motion. Flycatches insects, usually from a low perch; sometimes hovers. Often associated with manmade habitats, nesting under bridges or on buildings. Sexes are similar.

    Very nice pic. We have lots of birds visit the feeders in our yard. I can't figure out where the nests are, can't see any in any of the big trees. Our backyard is fenced with heavy woods behind it.

    I love your bird picture! Thanks for sharing with us.

    I don't think we have Phobes here but am not sure. I love to take pictures out my window at our bird feeder. We have lots of red-headed woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays, titmouses, chickedees, etc. Not many odd ones. We have painted buntings and SC towhees sometimes.

    Yes, I agree, Phoebe. I just love waiting for all the birds to return. Yesterday was awesome! White crowned sparrows, rose-breasted grosbeaks, Baltimore orioles, Orchard orioles. Just waiting for the Gray catbird, Ruby- throated humming bird, Brown thrasher, and Indigo bunting!
