Two Phoebes - Wings On Wednesday

Although they are common to this area, it was last week that I actually saw my first Black Phoebe. At first glance I thought it was a blackbird and then saw the white belly:)  

                                                             
                                                          Black Phoebe - Prescott, Az.

     Below, a  Say's Phoebe carried a tasty morsel along with him or her on top of a roof.
    I see these Phoebe's quite frequently in our area and its fun to watch them twist and turn to catch insects in mid air.

I must say I'm a little jealous. I haven't seen either yet. Nice shots.

Fantastic! Congratulations on the Black Phoebe sighting! They certainly are handsome looking birds. I would be thrilled to see both of the phoebes mentioned in this wonderful post.
