Courting phoebes

I saw a phoebe pair, courting perhaps, near the Nature Center this morning. We've had a nest in the porch eaves the last few years -- she's successfully reared 3 or 4 fledgings each year. She diligently brought insects to feed the nestlings (this photo is from last year).

The old nest fell down over the winter, finally, but I do hope that she'll rebuild.

It was such a great spot to watch - both directly and through the webcam that my colleague set up. Check out these expectant nestlings!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
