Eastern Phoebe

Sayornis phoebeOne of spring’s earliest arrivals, Sayornis phoebe have been around for a few weeks already. They generally perch over meadows and water bodies, making loopy forays into the air to hunt for insects. Perched, they wag their tails as if they know something about the nutritional value of insects. Sometimes you may be graced with them saying their name, which sounds rather froggy.Sayornis phoebeThey were all over Prospect Park yesterday.
