bird watching.. i have a nest of eastern phoebes right outside my bathroom window.. there were five little eggs & they all hatched.. i have been keeping my eye on them, taking photos every couple days.. it's amazing how fast they grow.. mama squawks something fierce at me from the nearby rose of sharon bush, so i am quick snapping photos..

this is in one week.. growing fast.. now they are almost too big for the little nest.. i walk by and can see their heads looking out.. i'm happy all five have made it.. by the size of them, they look like they will fledge soon..

UPDATE: i went to check on them tonight & the last 2 fledged and flew into the maple tree.. [17june2018]

Delightful. I love anything to do with birds, photography and to paint.
