Because the phoebe nest is located so close to my shed ceiling, I always had a difficult counting the nestlings during my nest watch.

At last, this photo captured all five nestlings – at the ready to fly. The photo was taken on 7-21. On 7-23, in the afternoon, I was lucky to see the last one fly out of the nest and up into a nearby trees and beyond. Its flight pattern was clearly not that of a skilled adult yet. I’m sure he or she will catch on quickly.
