Fly Bird

Sayornis phoebePerched on the edge of the dry moat surrounding Fort Jay, this Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) was one of several to be seen the other day darting around the old defenses hawking insects out of the air.Sayornis phoebeThis juvenile — note the touch of yellow on the belly — was on the Crescent Water in Green-Wood. They’ve been all over lately. You might think that there are hardly any flying insects about to eat, but clearly they’re getting something on their sorties.

Looks like that honeybee just crawled over the bird’s foot.
