the black phoebe

The Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans) spotted next to the LA River just above Atwater Village. According to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black_Phoebe/lifehistory this is a “dapper flycatcher” that scans the surrounding area for insects… they’re very petite, and usually spotted down near the water around sunset.

These photos were taken over the last few months…
