Eastern Phoebe

Scenic photo of the week

Nancy White Fitzpatrick submitted this photo of an Eastern Phoebe earlier this month. “The Phoebe has made and used a nest in our carport for the last three years and each year there are three babies,” she said. “The most recent baby birds are ready to fledge. I was out there taking pictures when one of the parents kind of buzzed over my head and landed in a tree nearby, giving me the opportunity to take a picture.” The bird is described as a “flycatcher” by audubon.org.
