Increased activity by the Eastern Phoebes out back told me they were likely nesting under the tractor lean-to again. Each time I went out to take a peak, the adult flew off. Since I was in camera mode yesterday I took another look and found a nest full of baby phoebes!


Last year’s nest was enhanced with fresh down, moss and grass and was now home to a clutch of babies. I spied three beaks, but suspect there might be one or two more hiding in there.


Mama was not happy with my interference, so I didn’t stay long!
