Nestlings

This isn’t the most flattering photo of the Eastern Phoebe nestlings, but I decided to post it since this was the one and only photo shoot I’ll take of them. My presence this close to the nest upset the parents more than I expected. I decided that since I want them to return to our yard again, I would keep my distance from now on. Thankfully, routine yard work doesn’t seem to faze them.

The nestlings seemed unperturbed by my camera, though, and were curious, cocking their heads to check it out when the shutter released. I look forward to seeing them fully fledged and hope they consider our yard their home, too.
