update on phoebe’s nest

Last week I noted that a phoebe had built a new nest on the side of my cabin where there had been one for many years. On my visit over the weekend I found four eggs in the nest. (Sorry about the blurry photo.)

One year we recorded three successful clutches and a fourth with an outcome we never learned.

Also on that trip we saw a kettle of turkey vultures over the south ridge. We often see two or three there, but there were more than a half dozen this time.

Update 11MAY23 – When I was at the cabin just over a week ago, I peeked into the nest and saw at least four and maybe five hatchlings. They’re all fuzzy right now, so it was hard to distinguish them from each other. Also, my phone camera won’t focus well under those conditions.
