May 9, 2013: Say's Phoebe

This Say's Phoebe was found today (9th) in the prairie area below the Upland Trail (where the Tree Swallow nesting boxes are located). This western species is accidental for Iowa and represents #263 for my Park List (and also my first Iowa record). [One had been seen at the IOU Spring Meeting in Cedar Falls last weekend.] It flies and feeds similarly to our Eastern Phoebe (2 were present in the same area). 5/9/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
