Black Phoebe perched near the water at Piute Ponds in Rosamond, California. The group of ponds are located on Edwards Air Force Base. The location is a birding hotspot where well over 200 species have been observed. It is only open to the public with a permit since it is the property of the military base. I have been observing the birds there for several years now and it is one of my favorite places to see birds.

The Black Phoebes there hang out near the water where they perch to catch small insects which are abundant.
