Birded both upstream and downstream of Calle de los Amigos, but spent much of the time searching for a continuing Eastern Phoebe midway between Calle de los Amigos and Torino. Sunny, mild, mostly light winds.

    Comments: Continuing. After an hour of searching, I spotted the bird in mid-canopy in a budding willow. It behaved in a way that I consider not really typical of this species, moving around a bit in the open canopy of a couple of willows, rather than making sallies in a more open space. The bird was about the size and shape of a Say's Phoebe, dark brownish-gray above, pale fringes to the greater coverts (not obvious, contrasting wing bars, but faint), darker on the crown and down through the eyes, dingy whitish on the under parts, with the whitish of the under parts and the dark of the upper parts blending a bit on the lower face. The bill was black. The underside of the tail was white. It flicked its tail by dropping it down, then moving it upward. The tail movement of Eastern Phoebes I've seen in the past were more like those of other phoebe species, but this motion was less vigorous and reminded me a bit of the motion of a Gray Flycatcher. The call closely resembled the one note call of a Black Phoebe, but was probably a little shorter/sharper.
