This morning I wanted to be sure I was tuned in to Phoebe's nest maybe when she comes out of torpor or when she first left the nest and Im sure I did. I was tuned into her before 9am my time which had to be at least before 7am there. Then at 9:18 I could barely make out her tail feathers flitting and then I heard her leave but couldnt really see her and then she came back rather quickly and she was obviously feeding the chicks but you couldnt see them at that time. Very interesting how early she up and at em when she is no more than a shadow.
