Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans)


6-7" (15-18 cm). Slate-black except for white belly, undertail coverts, and outer tail feathers. Its tail-wagging, erect posture, and insectivorous feeding habits are helpful in field identification.

WHEN: All times of the day

WHERE: Very common. Seen throughout the marshes. Look for any area where flies and mosquitoes might be.
