Boidnoise Various nature recordings by Bernhard Kroeger



  • Black phoebe (Sayornis nigricans) Upper Bridgeport SP in Nevada County, CA

    Black phoebes are flycatchers that prefer the presence of water.  They will be seen perched either high or low, dart out after an insect, and often return to the same perch.  With their toxedo clad appearance they are easy to recognize and their high pitched “ptee” call is hard to miss.  Note that this bird alternated each call ending with first an upslur and the next call with a downslur.  April 17, 2007
