Skywatch Friday: Black Phoebe, Blue sky
Click on photo to enlarge for best view.
The Black Phoebe is most often found around water where is perches on a low branch hunting insects. Like all Phoebe's it often "wags" its tail while perched. I saw my first one at Boyce Thompson arboretum last September and photographed this one when I visited this year. Uncharacteristically it was in a mostly dead tree in the picnic area alongside the currently dry Queen Creek.
