    So Nat Geo and I aren't on the same page. This is what I get when the sun is shining directly into my lens and the subject is inside a dark place. I gotta wait for a cloudy day to try it again. I don't think this pair is going to be going anyplace. This is highly photoshopped!

    Two pairs of Eastern Phoebes have nested on our house for three and four years now. Two years ago one lost a mate and successfully raised four chicks! (They had just hatched.) One of them is very friendly and will come up on our patio with us up there and watch us.

    Haha! I'm so embarrassed. "This is the most common of common birds of all time, newbie." 🙂 Thank you very much, Melierax.

    Location/habitat: Merry Brothers Brick Ponds--ponds of various sizes, including some very large bodies of water, divided by dikes/roads which are overgrown with bushes and tree's. I think I flushed the bird from a line of small trees. It flew over a pond reaching an altitude of roughly 30 feet before dropping back down into trees in the background. You aptly describe the flap and glide flight pattern. It was slower and heavier than a Sharp-shinned. And I agree they white showing is the undertail coverts rather than the rump.

    Lincoln's seconded. Note the buffy submoustachial, very weak, almost imperceptible dark malar (Songs have a very strong, broad, dark malar streak), very fine streaking underneath, buffy on breast and flanks, overall more delicately patterned in less bold colors than Song, with lots of grays and pale browns, rather than darker browns and rufous tones that a Song would have. Lincoln's are such a beautiful sparrow, a study in how delicate but distinct patterning of drab colors can create subtle yet exquisite beauty.

    Today I got Blue-headed Vireo, and a BALD EAGLE! Both were very high on my bucket list.

    I may have been a little fast on this one!
