Eastern Phoebe - post breeding molt

This disheveled-looking Eastern Phoebe used one of the granite blocks in the yard as perch, spending much time in grooming. It shows a patch of rosy skin on its belly, clearly a brood patch, and seems to be going through the post-breeding molt. I didn't see any young birds around.


  1. How cool you caught the brood patch. I've never done that. I hope all her babies fledged successfully....just a few more bad hair days, and she will be set!

  2. I was playing games online however for reading this post more interesting thanks for the share please do keep it going great job....Loving this.
