Black Phoebes & Heebie-Jeebies (rebus)

The Black Phoebe - My Spigot Sentinel

Flittering from its perch, this small flycatcher plucks flying insects from the air and returns to the same spot to hunt again.

It was the Phoebe I discovered through my budding bird interest and backyard attentiveness. Before my watching hobby began, I'd never observed the bird. Didn't know it existed.

There's a water spigot in my yard. It stands on a galvanized pipe about 3 feet above the ground. It was here I first noticed this small, black and white bird.

When I'm in the backyard, it's nice to see the steady pile of bird droppings on the spigot handle - a sure sign my Phoebes are about and keeping the yard somewhat free of the flying insects.

the Black Phoebes hold a special place for me when I think of my early days of bird watching.
