Black Phoebes begin nesting in and around the Canon City area

I found this Black Phoebe and it's apparent mate this morning. As I watched this Black Phoebe pulled a piece of nesting material off what looks like a dried reed in the photo below. It flew with this plant fiber to a nesting area where a pair (likely these) used last year and probably at least one year before.
The Black Phoebe in the bottom pic was near the MacKenzie Ave bridge over the Arkansas River. I have seen a second Black Phoebe at that location and these are another apparent pair. This is another site that has been used previously for nesting. SeEtta
