I don't know this bird! It frustrates me too. It is on the small side, but not as small as a sparrow.
It is black/gray on the top and white on the underside. It has a small beak.
Not a woodpecker or robin or anything like that.
Wish I could find out!!
It's so funny to see it sitting on the tiniest of branches all the time. :lol:

Just found it online- it is a black phoebe! When I look at the pics it makes me laugh, too.

Black Phoebe is very similar to a native thrush here in chirruping range (saw/heard on YouTube). Now I understand preference for twig sitting because any predators will quickly be seen - and unable to balance on small part of tree.

Black Phoebe...
I have a black bunny named Phoebe :)

Also have 2 other bunnies, 2 dogs, and a cat. Cuddling them and watching them play and have fun brings me so much joy.

What a brilliant idea, thank you! : )

Playing mario on my nintendo switch.

Going for a lovely Italian meal with my mum.

Watching a good old western film with clint eastwood or john wayne.

Listening to new music on spotify (ariana grande's is meant to be good).

Getting a pedicure and a massage.

Getting fake lashes.

Buying new make up.

Thank you. : ) xxx

it is delicious and so easy to make! my favorite recipe is the no-bake one from the Brown Eyed Baker website. all you need is oreo cookie crust (i like to buy the premade ones, or you can make it with just oreos and butter), cream cheese, peanut butter, cool whip, sugar, and of course, butterfingers! :)
