Tiny Bird, Tiny Branches | Eastern Phoebe | New York

There are so many reasons to love birds.

Bright colors. Sharp beaks and talons. Enormous wingspans. Amazing acrobatics. Ability to catch prey.

Sometimes these features occur all in one creature.

One bird I really like is this tiny little drab colors bird, the Eastern Phoebe.

They are just un to watch

Eastern Phoebes are hyper active little birds. They do not sit still for long.

Moving from branch to branch. Exploding into flight to catch insects.

Then the cutest thing they do is in the moments they are perched they often have this tail wagging movement that for me always tells me that it is a Eastern Phoebe that I am watching.

I have seen them around my yard a lot this year, but never managed to capture any photos of them this year.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal Length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/500 sec. f/5.6.

Eastern Phoebe

Success! You're on the list.
