Baby Bird

Not sure maybe an Eastern Phoebe?

My Nesting Eastern Phoebe

The story of this nest couldn’t be told with just one picture. My Phoebe’s nest was destroyed in last spring’s rains. With a little help from me, this resilient little bird re-built the nest and successfully fledged another brood. This year, she raised two broods!

First Flight

I watched this baby Phoebe stand at the edge of the nest drumming up the nerve to test his wings. He finally launched himself into the air, landing on the back of this folding chair. A few moments he tried flight again and was off!
