  1. If your in ferrisburgh,vermont & that,s east, so that bird looks like in eastern pheobe & they like to nest in places like that.& you will be able to tell what kind of bird it is & its because of how they flick their tail,they flick their tail twice every 3 seconds so now you know what bird it is.

    Nice finds! The nest built in the corner of the stone house is an eastern phoebe! They’re super interesting birds that often nest on ledges and posts in/on man made structures, (similar to how robins sometimes nest) and phoebes build their nests using moss. They also frequently nest near the edges of water bodies.
