Black Phoebie GRPH 5-5-11 9
A Black Phoebe Sayornis nigricans stands on a rock watching for flying insects to eat (and possibly giving the photographer the "eye"...) in Garin Regional Park, Hayward, CA. Taken by a Nikon D40x with a Sigma 70-300 DG non-APO macro lens (at 300) Cropped heavily to square.
The photographer can't make out what sort of insect the Phoebe has caught and is holding in his/her beak - a grasshopper? Cricket? Moth/butterfly?
