A Phoebe’s Nest at Auburn

Published in 1953

On May 16, 1953, the nest of an Eastern Phoebe, Sayornis phoebe, was observed by Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Cunningham and t~e writ,er and ~is wife. The nest was located on top of a light fixture III the fish counting and holding building adjacent to the E-series ponds on the Agricultural Experiment Station grounds of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute, just north of Auburn, Lee County, Alabama. The nesting pair had been observed for several weeks previously. This is concrete evidence of an extension of the range of the Phoebe and therefore is worthy of note.Julian L.
