Here's a couple quick little sketches of flycatchers. Called flycatchers due to there manner of feeding or hunting, perching in one spot then flying out to catch insects out of the air. Both are rather plain or even drab in their color and markings but no less beautiful than more fanciful species. The Eastern Phoebe (top) is a slim flycatcher that perches low along streams. The Eastern Wood-pewee perches high among foliage in forests and is rarely seen.97,98
