Bird of the Day: Black Phoebe at Stanislaus
You may see this particular bird more than once on this blog. It hangs out in the same spot outside my office at CSU Stanislaus near a cottonwood tree in the Outdoor Education Lab. It's a Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans). I've seen them at all of my bird hunting spots around town, but this individual has been the most consistent, hunting for insects around the pond by the Science Building. It's a variety of flycatcher, found near water sources all over the southwestern United States.
