Say's Phoebe - Kelowna, BC

On the way into Robert Lake, a Say's Phoebe was flycatching from the fence posts. I parked 5 posts up from the bird and waited patiently for him to land on my fence post. I near about fell over when he did exactly what I was thinking. Sometimes photography requires all sorts of ingenuity to get the shot and using a vehicle as a blind works very well. Say's pheobes like grassland or farm land with perches 3-5 feet from the ground. They are also one of the flycatchers that breeds furthest north into the arctic circle and to the very northern tip of Alaska.
