Just a note if you are going Phoebe looking. I talked to some birders the other day at the Hogum Bay ponds about where to look for the Black Phoebe-which wasn't present at the time. They were looking way too high. The Phoebe pretty much stays at or below the tops of the shelters. In fact the first time I ID'ed it, it was sitting on the roof of a shelter and is the highest I've seen it. It has also been seen sitting on the backs of the benches which are around 3'. So I think the normal zone around 3'-15'. Maybe a little more but not up where the Eagles live- more like the lower two thirds of the willows. Feel free to comment if you have other experiences with it.
Life is for the birds.
