Phainopepla

Seen mostly during the Fall/Winter season in my area, the Phainopepla (fay-no-PEP-la), meaning the “shining robe”, is a silky flycatcher. They feed mostly on insects and mistletoe berries. Nesting in early spring, courtship involves exchanging berries as well as flight and chase patterns.Seldom heard song is a short warble. Marana, AZ

VOICE Song a lackadaisical series of whistled and harsh notes, a cross between vireos and catbirds, including imitations of many species. Call a high, distinctive, nasal woit?.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    A beauty! This is a bird I’ve seen only in the birdbooks – but whenever I happen to run across him, I pronounce his wonderful name over & over. Am doing it right now, in fact….

  • LOL, it took me several books and sights to find the proper way to say it. For the record if you don’t know it is (fay-no-PEP-la)…Thank you!
