Eastern Phoebe, June 21, 2017

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 4, 2017
Eastern Phoebes, Sayornis phoebe, can be seen in the eastern half of the United States and in many provinces of Canada. Their winter range includes Mexico and the Central American countries. They are very vocal birds, and can be identified by their call: phoe-be, phoe-be, phoe-be. Another identifier is their habit of flicking their tails up and down.

Their major food sources are flying insects, but they also eat spiders, ticks, millipedes, seeds, and small fruit.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

  2. Nice pictures of one of my favorite birds.

  3. Hello!:) This is a sweet little bird, one we don't have here in Portugal. I like the fact that they eat ticks, I had to remove the pesky arachnids from Mel every day when on holiday in the Algarve.
