The New Family. The love birds arrival took me by surprise. A delightful surprise for these birds have nested here in years past. The nesting site however was vacant for many -a -year. In early Spring I heard them sung, I was hoping, longing for their return. They're finally here, and are actively building their nest. Oh joy!
Eastern Phoebes Nesting 2016
Lilies are so pretty. My Asiatics are blooming now.
I'm assuming the phoebes are at the lights at the top of the garage? We have phoebes, but I don't know where they nest.
Yes, of all places the little ones decided to pick the flood light. I'm all so thankful they did. Big smile! Further more they proved that I was wrong. I thought they were meant to be reclusive. ... but here they come for they have a task to be accomplished . Building their nest.
Good news! Today is the 2nd day I saw the Eastern Phoebes sitting on nest.
My Phoebes don't come to feeders. I do see them catch bugs in our yard.
I watched the Phoebe catch bugs in the air today. It was sitting on the cucumber trellis. I think they are fun to watch.
Ah, so cute.
My Bluebirds parents have fledged their second brood. Now, we have four babies showing up at the feeders along with the parents. So cute and enjoyable.
I feed them mealworms.
