Subject: Nestling demise
I had 5 healthy, active phoebe nestlings yesterday. Today they are all
dead! Two were on the ground below the nest, one still in the nest, and
two MIA. There were hundreds of tiny bugs in and around the nest that
looked like mites. Could that be what killed them? I removed the nest and
cleaned the area. I love my birds and am heartbroken. Will Mama Phoebe
nest again?
