One Photo A Day | Day 194 | Birding: Eastern Phoebe
One photo a day challenge: Day 194.
I wanted to do some photography that I haven’t been doing as much of lately.
I set out into my yard to hopefully see some birds. The birds were out there flitting about along the edges of the woods and moving across my yard.
I just needed a few to get close enough for a decent photograph. There were woodpeckers, finches, and flycatchers moving about.
I could hear the catbirds and red-winged blackbirds calling from the trees.
None of whom seemed willing to cooperate for a photograph. I used the Merlin app to ID gold finches by sound circling overhead singing a song I was unfamiliar with.
At one point this eastern phoebe made an appearance. The bird alighted on a branch close enough for a decent photograph. It did not stay long.
There appears to be a small group of them. They did not sit still long. The group of birds did not stick around long either.
They vanished from sight quickly. Off into the deeper woods.
