Hi Barbara,

Thanks for reporting that phoebe nest. Your home is in atlas block
Alfred_CW, which has not been adopted by anyone yet, but your report still
matters and we'd like to get it officially into the database. If you use
eBird, it's pretty easy to assign a checklist to the atlas. If you don't
use eBird yet, please consider starting. But if you would rather report
using paper forms, you can download an "Incidental Report Form" from the
atlas website:

http://www.maine.gov/ifw/fish-wildlife/maine-bird-atlas/resources-materials.html

Take a look at the other resources there, too, especially the breeding bird
codes. Hopefully, you will be able to document those phoebes at the highest
level of confidence (without disturbing them). And good luck with the
cardinals and other nesting species around your place.

Scott Richardson
