Eastern Phoebes

The Eastern Phoebe is a loner, rarely coming in contact with other phoebes. Even members of a mated pair do not spend much time together.

Eastern Phoebe


There are a lot of Eastern Phoebes around, teasing for their shot of fame.

These are my two favorite photos so far from the last few weeks.  I couldn’t single it to one.

Eastern Phoebe


Did you know the Eastern Phoebe was the first banded bird in North America?

John James Audubon attached silvered thread to an Eastern Phoebe’s leg to track its return in successive years.
