Eastern Phoebe

Posted on Oct 10, 2015

The Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) is one of October migration’s best known sights as the little flycatcher pours through our region. The “right” day can yield numbers into the dozens at times in appropriate habitats. What is the latest you have ever seen one hanging on in the Northeast? One or two are regularly found on some very chilly Christmas Bird Counts.
