Re: bird id


He is beautiful. Remember the fairy tale about the blue bird? Bet they were looking for that one :) ----- Original Message ----- From: "Zemuly Sanders" <zemuly@comcast.net>

I'd rule out the flycatcher, breast not bright. The eastern Phoebe looks plausible, but no reddish tail. The wren Theresa mentioned seems likely. While searching for pictures I came across the Fairy Wren. Oh my! Glorious. Not mine though.

I assume you mean chickadee sized. That and the reddish tail have me
stumped. Check your bird pictures and see if they might be  Eastern
Phoebes or possibly (if larger than you thought) a great crested
flycatcher.

I have had a new kind of bird here all summer and thought maybe
someone would have an idea.  They're way too fast and skittish for
me to get a picture.  They are rounded and little perhaps like a
chickadee. From a distance they seem to have a light gray breast
with darker wing feathers and i think the tail feathers might be
red or reddish.  The distinctive feature is their sound.  For such
a little bird they are very loud, making a sound like a cicada that
lasts 2 or 3 seconds at a time.  Any ideas?
