Description

For a few days the phoebe nestlings were poking their heads up. This nesting attempt started with 5 eggs. But I could only see three nestlings the entire time. The nest placement is in my shed and on top of the ceiling light fixture, so the nestlings were difficult to see.

I decided to take this photo to confirm the number of nestlings. As you can see, there are only three nestling visible, there may have been one or two more looking out the back of the nest. I’m not sure. But I will never know. That same day, three hours or so after I took this photo, the nest was empty.
