Normally we have Eastern Phoebes around the farm. For years one nested on a light over the back door of the garage. In recent years they have not nested around the house but they turn up occasionally. This week one turned up at my bird feeders. Typically they don’t eat anything at the feeders so I was a little puzzled. It was a hot day and the phoebe looked a little out of sorts. Shortly after he arrived he started chasing an American Goldfinch. He returned to the feeder and then chased another goldfinch. This behavior went on for about 15 minutes. A few days later he was back and still chasing goldfinches.
