Black Phoebe

On 14 September 2021, Erika and I searched for a Black Phoebe reported from Eagle Lake along the Chehalis Bike Trail near Olympia. I first saw this flycatcher there in January, but I am aware of no records all spring and summer—until a report sprung up last week on eBird. We had no difficulty finding the bird along the trail over the lake shore. We were even able to record its song— Black Phoebes are rare, but increasing, in Washington.
