Our resident wintering flycatcher species is the Eastern Phoebe. And today, right on schedule, he or she is here! For each of the past four winters, an Eastern Phoebe shows up on October 23, and spends the winter in the yard, departing in April.
No idea if it is the same bird as it is not banded but it is an interesting observation either way. -- Ask me about my upcoming book - a photo essay of North American and Caribbean Hummingbirds!
