Eastern Phoebe with Damselfly

Eastern Phoebe with Damselfly

My field guide says the Eastern Phoebe builds its nest in shrubs. This one built its nest under the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows. Here he/she is waiting patiently for an opportunity to swoop down under the boardwalk unnoticed by passersby and deliver a fresh meal to waiting mouths.

Location: Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax, VA
