Bird Tweet of the Week: Eastern Phoebe

The Eastern Phoebe feeds on insects in flight and is one of the last songbirds to leave its breeding grounds in the fall. You can easily identify them by their frequent tail pumping when they are perched.   Each week we introduce a new bird from the Ottawa-Gatineau area. Alex MacDonald, Nature Canada’s Manager of Protected Areas, shares interesting facts about the birds that live in our communities. Catch up on past episode here on our website.
