At least, that’s what I think they are! Unfortunately I was so focused on working with the four fledglings that I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to the parents which were off foraging. After about 10 minutes of working with the kids, I left them so that I didn’t cause the parents any stress.
My first impression when I saw the parents was that they were Eastern Phoebes. But when I got back, I started looking at Eastern Wood-pewees. The juveniles can be a little confusing, especially when the yellow wash on the belly tended to come and go with the changing light conditions!
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week!
