Say's Pheobe

The Says Pheobe is elegant looking and charming to watch as they perch on various limbs around our yard. That affect disguises their pernicious and adept ability to hunt. In a split second, they morph from calmly perched to fiendish flurry as they relentlessly clear our yard of any bugs that happen into their zone.  

The bird in this photo had just launched off the limb of an agave plant to swoop down upon its unsuspecting prey. Just before it landed, it spread out its wings as an air brake, hovered for a moment, and finished the kill. Whether perching adorably or hunting voraciously, I could watch this bird all day and consider it a day well spent. 

I live grateful to God for the chance to witness and share His artwork and humbly remain His scribe.
