A Fine-Feathered Phoebe

Although we have plenty of Phoebes in the area it is rare for one to come to the backyard, so it was a treat when this one landed for a quick drink.

These tail-bobbing birds usually perch on branches and then dart down to capture insects.  I guess this fellow got a bit thirsty.

I love how soft and fluffy he looks.  Definitely a fine-feathered Phoebe!
