During our trip to California in November 2014 we came upon numerous Phoebes. I had seen Black Phoebe in Costa Rica before but Say's was a new world thick for me. Black Phoebes always remind me of a cross between a Pied Wagtail and Black Redstart in their appearance, behaviour and habitat choice, whereas Say's remind me of a cross between Spotted Flycatcher and Redstart for much of the same reasons as black.
