We spent some time watching and documenting a Says Phoebe today. They look very similar to a Robin and can easily be misidentified if you see them fly by. I am always prone to getting a bird in flight rather than perched on a tree. So, I sat for awhile waiting and watching this guy hop around doing my best to get a good image.
My son was excited to mark this species in his bird book. We have all the birds we’ve seen so far marked with dates, locations and seasons. It is very fun to go back and look at all the birds we have seen so far. He might need to get a new one soon as his book has pages falling out of it from so much use and page flipping.
On a side not, it has been raining like the dickens on our side of town. Three days straight with little intervals of stoppage. The bonus is it makes for great birding and my lawn looks wonderful.
