Hmmm... can't figure out how to take the IMG #'s off of the bottom.
:(

Oh Lynne, those pictures are so cute! Are they taken in your backyard?

Lynne said...

Ruthie- Thanks, they were taken a couple of weeks ago at Hasty Brook.

Red said...

you got some really nice pics there :) a few days ago, i finally saw the black phoebe my mom was saying was around. same face... ours is just black and white - or so it looked, i didn't get a good picture of it... it's shy.

Really nice pictures of the Eastern Phoebe. It's been a bit slow for birds around here, just the common ones but soon we'll be getting the fall migration. Yoohoo!

Jayne said...

Oh Lynne, those are just beautiful!

This was such a beautiful slide show of the phoebe - I especially liked the picture where he was preening his feathers!

Ruth said...

What a lovely set of pictures. I like the slide show effect.

What a sweet little bird. Lovely slide show. I loved it.

Richard said...

Greaty, great, absolutely great.

Neat Phoebe pix. What's the program for creating the slide show? It's a neat way to present multiple pictures of one subject!!
Keep up the good work.

After posting & asking for the slide program, I got my answer when the program asked me to sign up for new posts -- which, of course, I did. Thanks Lynne.

Red- This phoebe sat about twenty feet away and preened for quite a while. It was the best look I've ever gotten.

Linda- Yep, fall migration is moving on in. I had a pair of redstarts in my yard at home today, the first I've seen here since spring.

Jayne- Thank you WV birding pal!

Shelley- I like the preening shots the best too.

Ruth- It was fun to try something different.

ncmountainwoman- Why, thank you!

Richard- Thank you very kindly! I got lucky looks.

Ivars- Glad you liked the slideshow. I wish I could figure out why the immage #'s showed up on the bottom.

Lynne, these pictures are wonderful! For some reason - when I look at them I keep thinking that this is a great crested flycatcher instead of a phoebe - just a gut feeling??? I am surely no expert - but it seems much more colorful than a phoebe and the tail seems longer like a flycatcher...what do you think?

Marsha said...

Cute slideshow. I just love the eyelashes on these little guys/girls.

Corey said...

Those are definitely phoebes. GC Flycatchers are much bigger, have a very distinct crest, a yellow tinge to the lower half of the body and wings, and a reddish long tail. No question on the ID.

So you are into slide shows now? I love it!
