Eastern Phoebe Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite:  In my part of South Dakota, it seems that if you find a small creek or other waterway with a bit of vegetation around it, if there's a bridge over the creek there's often an Eastern Phoebe around it. They've become quite accustomed to using bridges and other structures for nesting.  I see them quite often, but don't have a huge number of photos of the species. The photo below is from Newton Hills State Park in South Dakota, from September 30th, 2008.
