Black Phoebe update and pics

The pair of Black Phoebes at my friend's farm just east of Canon City have built at least one and maybe two nests in a rather inaccessible location right above a canal. Last year I thought they nested in this location also. When they arrived they started rebuilding an old nest under this walkway over the canal. They really shored it up nicely, but then began work under the walkway where it is not viewable unless one hangs upside down to see under it (which I did briefly).

The phoebes were appearing to bring food to the nest location but I haven't heard any nestling sounds.
