Phoebe


Yesterday, I heard the phoebe calling in the hour prior to Jared noticing three fledgling phoebes perched outside the bathroom window. His (?) calling had been daily, but I have not noticed the call today. It's possible that one of us was too busy - too busy preparing breakfast to listen for birds; too busy catching breakfast to call. I'll listen tomorrow.

Their nest was above the light fixture on the north side of the house. They had nested there in years prior, though not last year.

One phoebe parent did not like our outdoor dining area just a few yards from the nest. We eat breakfast outside, when temperature, insects, and time (and phoebes) allow.
