Black Phoebes checking out old nest sites

Today I visited my friend and got to watch the Black Phoebe pair checking out old nest sites under a small bridge where Black Phoebes have nested for several years. Each of the phoebes flew under the bridge like a husband and wife looking for a new house.

At one point both phoebes flew under the bridge in one location together. I hope they choose this site as I would be able to see it better than the site they choose last year--under a separate section where I had to hang my upper body over the bridge to look under it. Not only was this uncomfortable, but it kept me from doing much monitoring as I didn't want to disturb the nesting.


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