The vociferous Eastern Phoebe

The ROLF there are probably a dozen, maybe more Eastern Phoebe nests. The are a member of the flycatcher family; close related to the Wood PeeWee. Thy have two favorite nesting site; cliffs and along the eaves or porches of country buildings; like the Cedar House, Whispering Pines, or the Treetop Lookout. The are easily identified by their continuous singing of their name "phoebe, phoebe, phoebe, which can become monotonous while they are nesting. 

There was a pair at each of the above listed cabins just beginning their nesting in late May.
