Ash-throated flycatchers feeding and fledging


I set up a cctv cam in a bird box I adapted to record video in a field in front of the house. It is mounted about 14 feet above ground and was intended for either a small screech owl or a kestrel which I had seen roosting under a porch in a an out building. It was late in the season and I did’t really expect a mating pair to take up residence, but to my surprise and delight, a pair of ash throated flycatchers made it their home and had 3 chicks that fledged successfully. It was a great experience for the whole family and we spent many hours watching the birds come and go. Here is a link:
