Interesting behavior in my neighborhood. The Bluebirds are working hard to catch bugs for their second hatch. But a male Phoebe has made it harder. He follows the Bluebirds, and when they drop from their perch to retrieve a bug, he beats them to it, or sometimes tries to snatch it from them in the air. 
Luckily his nest appears to be off a ways, so they have enough moments of free hunting to keep going. 

The Phoebe is most active in the morning, but the Bluebirds hunt all day long.
