The Eastern Phoebes have returned to nest above our front porch light. There’s usually one in the nest at any given point: it’s rare to see them together away from it (see third photo, where they appear to be having words about who’s neglecting the kids).
And speaking of the kids, Jennifer had a peek into the phoebes’ nest. Behold, five phoebe eggs—and one egg belonging to the Brown-headed Cowbird, a brood parasite. (I *knew* those cowbirds were up to something.)
