Eastern Phoebe is among the earliest spring migrants. These sparrow-sized creatures are medium-sized flycatchers which have gray-brown, olive feathers above and whitish ones below. They lack eye rings and wing bars. They are similar to Eastern Wood Pewees, but they lack the species’ wing bars and orange lower mandible. Male or female sexes are alike. Juveniles have browner upperparts than the adults and have buffy wing bars which disappear as it grows. The size of an adult phoebe is 6” to 7” long.
