Western Wood-Pewee nestlings

Here are pics of a Western Wood-Pewee, her nest and nestlings in Pathfinder Park near Florence,CO. Unfortunately her nest was located high in the middle of a cottonwood canopy which is fairly dark. Because I am handholding the camera I have to use fast speeds which require more light and my 400 mm lens is also a light gobbler, so the pics came out dark.
The mother bird was bringing food to her nestlings in the top two pics but I didn't catch her feeding them. In the bottom pic I did catch her engaged in basic housekeeping--taking a fecal sack out of the nest. SeEtta
