Animals / Birds Black Phoebe Snow April 29, 2022 Timothy Price33 Comments A Black Pheobe was bopping around close to me tonight. It’s a sassing little bird. I was talking to a friend on the ditch bank when it flew between us, giving both of us a buzz. I decided to name it Snow. Really original, I know. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

That’s a beautiful bird Tim. Thanks for sharing him with us.
You are welcome, Juanita. It’s a real cutie.
That’s such a cute little bird. Looks tiny.
It’s a small bird. Thanks, Jeff.
Indeed. You’re welcome, Tim.
WOW. What a gorgeous little bird. Never seen one
Snow is giving you the eye! He’s adorable!
Thanks, Marina. He is darling.
Phoeboe looking gorgeous, ready to break out in song.
You are welcome Timothy.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Black Phoebe before.
Hi Liz. Their range is mostly Mexico and coastal California.This area is the northern most edge of their range. I’m lucky to see one.
I’m learning so much about birds since joining the blogging community several years ago. A most unexpected benefit!
Birders abound here. I’m not much of a birder. I like photographing birds, but all the details are too much for my ADHD.
That is a very photogenic little phoebe, Tim.
A steady rain up here early this morning and 49 degrees.
It was 32 when I went outside to photograph the conjunction between 5:00 and 5:30 this morning. Thanks, Lavinia.
A bird first for me. Were you and your friend a little too close to a nest perhaps?
I can’t say if there is a nest. It’s buzzing us didn’t seem aggressive. It was more like, “Excuse me. I’m squeezing between you two.” It was funny that he chose to fly between us as opposed to around us. It perches close to us. Too close for me to focus with the Bazooka that has a minimum focal distance of 11 feet. Thanks, Mary Jo.
so cute! why do you call him snow and not coal Tim?
It’s a play on the late singer Phoebe Snow.
Oh gotcha!!! Thanks Tim!
I love these flycatchers! I call them the chimney sweeps of the birding world – although I might start calling them Snows ..or along those same line Cates ha. None of them around my parts, but we get to see them on our trips to Las Vegas and Texas. Great shots.
Thanks, Brian. I thought you might like that little guy. He’s not shy in the least.
What a sweet little thing!
Nice shots, Tim!
Now I’m worried about the wildlife in the fires.
The fires burn up habitat. That’s for sure. Thanks, Resa.

It looks sassy!
Super sassy. Thanks, Dale.
We have a black phoebe that likes to hang out around our pool. He sits, chirping, on the edge, then darts out and grabs a bug (or something?), dipping his wings in the water. He is definitely sassy.
That’s really cool. They are adorable feisty little birds. Thanks, Ed.
