Black Phoebe

The only black-breasted flycatcher in North America, the black phoebe is perhaps the most conspicuous of the larger flycatchers (although it is not itself very large). Their range is restricted to the American southwest, California, and Mexico, though they inhabit this area year-round. They tend to hang out near water and are not averse to man-made environments, but in my experiences they're still pretty shy.
