Say's Phoebe

As we raced home from Olympia, most of our birding was restricted to Interstate rest areas. This Say's Phoebe was at an Interstate rest area in southern Montana.  This species breedings over much of western North America, even straying into Minnesota and eastern South Dakota.  Look for their nesting in abandoned prairie farm buildings. They prefer eating wasps and bees, but also sally forth to take a variety of other flying insects.
