Another shot from Carlos Avery

Here is another shot I took while I was at Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area this past weekend.
This eastern phoebe may be a distant relative of the first birds banded in North America. As a young man, in the early 1800s, John James Audubon tied silver thread onto the feet of phoebes, by his home, to track their migration. This was the first recorded banding in North America.
