I have loved watching the flycatcher family who had a nest under our deck. The parents would tend the young every day. They watched over the nest.
And they caught flies to feed to the babies.
happened to go outside midafternoon, and I saw two of the babies
sitting on the edge of the nest tray. Another two babies can't be seen.
They were in the nest behind these to forerunners.
My impression was that
all four baby flycatchers made it into the branches near our house. Some
years, the family comes back to the nesting area once or twice during
the summer. Other years, I've never seen them again. I hope that they
all make it, and that perhaps one of the babies comes back to nest under
our deck someday!
I love summertime!
