8649Re: [nflbirds] E. Phoebe behavior
- Nov 12, 2013No, but hardly surprising. Phoebes are one of our few territorial wintering species, and I have a pretty hormonal one that winters in my yard. But what they have in fury they lack in brains, as repeated attacks on mirrors is a bad “reflection” on their good sense.Jim in GalvestonHi allA neighbor said she has a bird attacking her car side mirrors. She described it, and after I showed her photos, shesays it's an Eastern Phoebe. She also identified it by vocalizations. I've heard of Cardinals attacking mirrors butnot Phoebes, and not this time of year. Has anyone else seen this behavior in Phoebes?
