These Eastern Phoebes were hatched and raised just outside my front door inside a small portico. The mom and chicks became very comfortable with our use of the door and sometimes my snapping some photos through a cracked door. The mom would never stop on the nest to feed but rather would fly by and feed in mid flight. They all seemed to get enough to eat. My wife happened to be out front when they all left at the same time in a little baby bird flock and they never returned. A new nest goes up every year now even though it took 13 years before the first nest appeared on the house.
