I got this by e-mail from SC of CA, wife of a past president of Pasadena Audobon Society:
Hi Father Z:
I’m a daily reader of your blog. I’ve really been enjoying your bird feeder visitors. However, I tend to disagree that Mr. Say’s Phoebee is a Phoebee. You were right before. After consulting hubby, who is an avid birder, he confirmed that your cute little guest is an Eastern Peewee. Say’s Phoebee’s have a more upright posture and a buff underbelly–no yellow.
Allow me to give you the bird:
The problem remains that this bird with absolutely no hesitation bobs his tail. That suggests Phoebe, not Pewee.
The controversy rages!
