The Flycatcher Family
August 03, 2013 • Leave a Comment
A pair of Flycatchers built a nest outside our home in northeastern Washington state. The nest is wedged in the crevice between a wall and a porch lamp attached to the house. The nest is barely the size of a grapefruit. The parents take turns caring for the babies in the nest. One at a time they go out into the surrounding woods, catch bugs and return to a wire near the nest. They wait for a moment inspecting the area, then quickly fly into the nest to feed the babies and depart. The parents repeat this act endlessly throughout the day.
