Re: Abandoned Sidewalk, Old Town, Scottsdale, Az

Eastern Phoebes

Every spring morning beginning just about sunrise and continuing for about an hour I hear the phoebes incessantly calling out their name "Phoebe, phoebe".

They mostly set up on a little island in the reservoir that would mean getting a boat. Sometimes a gr...

I tried a pastel processing approach to this one. Softness in birds is always risky so I'm not sure.
