Description

2 May 2015: Observed an Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) foraging to feed its growing brood of nestlings somewhere nearby. Eastern Phoebes raise from 1-2 broods per year. In doing so, Eastern Phoebes will find any number of favorite perches at different elevations and from these observation points proceed to periodically swoop down to the ground or in midair if not to catch their favorite insect food. This observation occurred in the Cooper Creek and Avondale Park area of Denton, Texas. The City of Denton administers Avondale Park.

Eastern Phoebes are a North American species that is native to Canada, United States and Mexico, according to the range map provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's All About Birds online encyclopedia on the birds of North America. Eastern Phoebes live year-round in some parts of North and East Texas and other areas of the South and Southeast of the US. It also migrates to large areas of the Canadian north and winters in about half of Mexico especially its eastern and central states. Apparently, the southern range of the Eastern Phoebe does not extend into the Caribbean or past Mexico into Central and South America.

Description

24 April 2015: Observed an Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) catch a green caterpillar and prepare to ingest it. Eastern Phoebes nest and raise their broods in the Avondale Park and Cooper Creek areas of Denton, Texas. Since Eastern Phoebes raise from 1-2 broods per year, the green caterpillar in the beak of this adult bird may have meant that their first brood was already being raised nearby.
