Phoebe eggs hatched!   Leave a comment

I went down cellar this morning to unlock the door for the plumber (who is supposed to be here today, please God, I miss hot water) and I looked at the little nest the phoebe’s built on the support tot he deck – I know there were at least three eggs in it, because I can see it if I work hard from the deck above, but today it was just full of fluff! Fluff that moved and had little mouths. And mama was swooping in to feed hungry little birds. I saw at least two heads, got really bad video and not much better photos, I’ll try to do better tomorrow – wish I had thought to wash that window before she sat on her eggs.

Anyway, we are very happy to have them born, and can’t wait for them to fledge, as we want to use the deck!
