The Flycatcher Nest

M. and I were gone from July 24-30. When we came home, we checked the nest of the Cordilleran flycatchers that I mentioned earlier.

It was empty, except for the desiccated corpse of one chick--earlier I had noticed that one seemed to be smaller and weaker than the other two.

I was surprised that they had fledged so quickly, but this site seems to say that the time frame was correct.
