Nesting Say's Phoebes

While at a meeting in Pueblo today, I saw 2 Say's Phoebes sallying near the building I was in. I followed and found they were nesting under the business car port (cover for about 8 cars) just outside the building. At least 2 fledglings could be seen and the parent's were taking turns feeding them. Say's Phoebes are a fairly common species in southeast Colorado during breeding season. There are also some birds that overwinter in the area though most apparently migrate south.

Back in Canon City, I heard a Dickcissel singing at a few minutes before 9 pm when it was almost dark. That is the latest I have heard a Dickcissel sing.


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
