The second Phoebe family
raised on the farmhouse front porch
this summer
has flown the nest!
First one,
then the last two.

While I’ve missed
the hummingbird presence—
they have been few and far between
this summer—it’s been lovely
to watch the Phoebe parents’
partnering and parenting,
the babes’ dependency
and independence.
