Eastern Phoebe by robbobert Eastern Phoebe by robbobert
An Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) sits perched in a juniper tree out over the Pedernales River at Pedernales Falls State Park in Texas.

I suck at identifying birds on the fly (altohugh I'm getting better of late), so this was more for identification purposes than anything. The bird's pose was wonderful though, so I cropped it down, and here you have it.

Thanks. It's one of the very few decent bird photos I've gotten outside of a zoo to this point. I need a longer lens and/or a teleconverter to get closer to them, but I don't have the $4000 to blow on a decent long lens. ;)
