Western Flycatchers Grow Up

“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”
J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird

Western Flycatchers are Back

[T]hese flowers, so fragrant, grew
And the birds and bees sipped sweet nectar
From the sparkling, morning dew.
God has blessed all beauties of Nature;
He’s set His approval and seal
On all of His small, winged messengers
That fly through the air with such zeal.
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “Honeysuckle” (1940s)

For the third year in a row, the western flycatchers have chosen to nest next to the front door to the house.

I love that they trust us enough to come back year after year. 

I love watching the little family grow.

The parents built up the nest:

There will be four siblings this year:
