Eastern Phoebe

Eastern Phoebe.
 
Even though I typically post one image each day, I usually capture images of several birds, most of which I seem not to share. Not because I don’t feel they are good enough to share, but because I have so many other images! With Mickey here, my mornings are spent playing “throw the ball, tug of war, throw the ball, and of course, throw the ball.” It is a chance for me to post some other bird images. One of my regulars is the Eastern Phoebe. I have one pair and their young in the yard most of the day. They hang out in the mornings near the beehives and snag a few slow moving bees. They are quite amazing birds to watch when they are hunting on the wing.

  1. I had no clue that birds would hunt bees. But, then, why not. Fascinating. ❤️

      It is very interesting to watch. They will grab butterflies sometimes and even some grab the bigger bees.
