Larry,
was there open water on your count?
Over the last 10 years, I have seen Phoebes throughout the winter here in
Phelps County.  I think that a few are always around, even if we don't find
them, as long as there is some open water.  I once found one at Meramec
Springs Park, at the spring, with 4" snow on the ground at the end of
December.
I wonder what they eat besides insects?
