Eastern Phoebe

Eastern Phoebe, Laudholm Farms, Wells Maine

The birds are liking the sculpture exhibit at Laudholm Farms in Wells Maine. Earlier this summer I photographed a Bluebird using a sculpture as a perch for hunting insects in the grasses of the meadow. On my last visit, this Eastern Phoebe was hunting form this iron rod sculpture of a deer. I saw it take at least 4 insects in the few moments I was photographing it. The sculpture, well out in the mown grasses beside the trail, made an ideal hunting perch. 🙂
