Conservation Status

Phoebe populations have increased in recent years. Phoebes often nest on humanmade structures such as decks, bridges, and barns. As humans continue to develop new areas of land, phoebes tend to have more areas to nest. However, phoebes are still vulnerable to issues such as habitat destruction and degradation.


Wooded areas, especially ones near water sources, are an ideal habitat for Eastern Phoebes. Phoebes also occupy woodland edges, fields with scattered trees, pastures, and farms.
