Black Phoebe with Black Phoeblets

20080418-007

There’s a pair of Black Phoebes camped out above one of our windows at work. Surprisingly, the shade beneath the overhang is quite intense, even on days when a few feet away, the sun is baking the lawn. This is probably a situation that calls for flash or a reflector, but I suspect that might seriously piss off the occupants of the office. : )

So, I cranked up my tripod to bring the camera up near the height of the next, set the slowest shutter speeds I could that would still capture motion, and triggered the shutter by remote.

These are pretty much my first usable shots of nesting birds and chicks. I’m pretty pleased, although I’ll probably take a few more cracks at it if I can before the little guys take off.
