Two weeks to Phoebe Day!

March 17 is the day Jack Meyer has chosen for his arrival countdown. But the Phoebe might show up earlier [or, for that matter, later].

Not a bad idea to start keeping an eye out for this lovely little tail-flicking flycatcher a week or so earlier. Recommended spots to check out:
the Lower Lobe, the Tupelo meadow, the Azalea Pond.
