Young Black Phoebe, August 8


I took this photo on August 8. Since I saw this young Black Phoebe with another one whose age I could not determine I don't know if it was still a fledgling or had attained independence at that time. However the Black Phoebes I have seen yesterday and today have clearly been in juvenal plumage with no signs of an adult bird so I believe it has attained independence and is now a juvenile (and not a fledgling).
