Say's phoebes are uncommon permanent residents of Oasis Valley, nesting here, and catching insects in creosote deserts, fences by marshes and grassy areas, and cottonwood groves. Any flycatcher seen in winter would probably be this one or the Black phoebe.

Say's phoebes are one of the most common birds in the searing arid deserts of Death Valley -- they seem to need little in the way of vegetation as they catch insects in barren badlands and stony bajadas. But they can also be found in the nearby Grapevine Mountains, with sagebrush and pinyon-juniper.
