My baby Say’s Phoebe’s were so frightened by a fly-over from the local Cooper’s Hawk this morning, that they all retreated to the nest this morning. Only three roosted on our porch last night. Only three have been seen getting food.
I’m hoping one has simply become independent since I haven’t found feathers anywhere nearby. The Phoebe parents are already fixing up their nest for a possible second brood. Say’s Phoebes are known to have two, and even three nestings in warmer climates, according to an Audubon web site I read yesterday. The parents seem eager to feed. I get exhausted just watching them! If only I had a small percent of their energy!
