[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little guy photographed near my home in South Carolina. He is a winter visitor and a member of the Fly Catcher family. I have heard that these little guys catch the flies right out of the air. They like to nest near people under bridges or sides of buildings. One more trait these birds have is they wag there tails very frequently. They also have a very pleasent song.

Very beautiful photo with sharp model and neat bg. This bird looks like the "Red-Breasted Flycatcher" in Europe and Asia.

Hi Tom,
Everything about this shot is first rate including the lighting and catchlight in the eye.
One thing though: I think the name should be Eastern Phoebe!
Well done!
TFS and regards, Ivan
