Black Phoebe Family saga--fledgling growing up

Day 8--Wow, one of the fledglings is really growing up--it flew around the sheltered area and then out more than a hundred feet away from the sheltered area. This is the first time I have seen one of the fledglings being this independent. This is the fledgling in this pic. The brown tips on flight feathers are apparent. There is still some residual orange gape that is visible when pic is double-clicked to enlarge it.

I could still hear other fledglings in their tree thicket and a parent still is bring ing food. SeEtta


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