Art by Barry Kent MacKay
This is a favourite bird of mine, because soft browns and tans, buffs and
other such colours so often found in desert birds appeal to me. The Say’s
Phoebe is by no means strictly a desert species (I saw my first one ever in
San Francisco, near the ocean), but it does tend to inhabit the more arid
regions of western North America and that is how I have shown it here.
However, it is also found in western mountain forests, and in fact ranges
from Alaska south deep into Mexico, and the odd one shows up here in Ontario
from time to time, but is a rarity this far east.
