? ? bad news


Recommended Posts

There is a nest of says phoebes in my backyard with 3 birds, but last night in a storm 2 of them died ?. One is still in the nest. Will the mother keep feeding it? Will she lay new eggs? What should I do if she has abandoned the last bird? she is standing at the edge of the nest with food but isn’t giving it to the baby... I hear it chirping for food

Also @Kevin I don’t know if this has anything to do with the age, but it first opened it’s eyes yesterday

I was just curious how old it was. Please keep us updated!

Usually when I go to check if it is alive (which it is) the mother bird is hanging around, but sometimes she is nowhere to be found ? also the baby bird is not poking its head out of the nest anymore but I hear it chirp

The mother can't be around the chick all of the time. What I would suggest doing is sitting for a little while away from the nest (as to not bother the birds) and watch to see if it's feeding the check. I wouldn't be surprised if it is. If the mother is hanging around the nest, it might still be feeding the young. The mother could have been forging for food at that moment.
