Black Phoebe

I shot this Black Phoebe during the BVAS February Bird Count when the clouds parted for just a split second and the birds came out. I managed to get this one shot and it flew off to go grab some grub before it started to rain. I just really love the highlights of the sun on the very black matte wings of the Phoebe. I feel like most black birds in the area have more iridescent feathers so highlights like these are abnormal here.
