Eastern Phoebe, Pala (Not-chasable)
This morning, January 18, 2019, I observed a Eastern Phoebe at a defunct dairy farm on private property, approximately 5 miles east of Interstate 15, along highway 76. It was an area I was working with construction crews, so my camera was in the car at the time, but got sufficient/great views through my binoculars. It then flew to an area I could not access when I had the opportunity to look for and attempt photos. I say “not-chasable” because you’d need to search from the 76 over a wide area and an extremely dangerous location. So not worth it. I only report this because I haven’t heard of one in SD County this fall/winter season that I recall. And always a good day when you get three phoebe species within 100’ feet of each other!
