The Flycatcher Family

Flycatcher Family

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.
