The Hogum Bay ponds BLACK PHOEBE made another appearance today. It flew into the pond area from the field to the north at 9:50AM. Initially, it landed between the first 2 ponds (1 large and 1 small pond). Then it flew to the larger pond and perched a few feet above the water near the shelter on the opposite side.

When it flew in it was very vocal. After it relocated on the larger pond, it was vocal off and on as it hawked insects. I watched the bird for about an hour.

This is the same place this Black Phoebe has been reported from earlier. Lacey, Hawks Prairie, parking at Hogum Bay Road and 30th Ave NE.
