Juvenile Black Phoebe on picnic table

Crisp wing edges with cinnamon wing bars and a touch of yellow on the gape at the fleshy corner of the mouth identify this Black Phoebe as a juvenile, only a couple of weeks old.

The bird perched on a concrete picnic table, so I lowered myself until I was shooting exactly level with the table top, as you can see by the feet. This gives an intimate, eye-level perspective.
