Subject: [MASSBIRD] Speaking of Phoebes, Rehoboth
One of my yard phoebes returned on March 4th. It has been a regular consumer of the dried mealworms that I put out for the bluebirds, as well as the heated water dish. What is most interesting is that it perches and swoops down to "catch" a mealworm in flight rather than grazing on the ground like the bluebirds.

Here's a pic from earlier in March
