Eastern Phoebes moving through Canon City area


I found this adult Eastern Phoebe perched on the opposite side of the Arkansas River from the Canon City Riverwalk this morning. Yesterday I found 3 Eastern Phoebes, 2 adults and 1 juvenile, in the Canon City area. This may still be some post breeding movement but seems more likely they are migrating (they are rarely seen in Colorado during winter but unknown if they migrate south in New Mexico or more easterly or southeastly).
