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.
