Eastern Phoebe hatchlings: a photo story of their development

This is the last photo I have of our chicks. During the night, something tore down the nest. I'm thinking raccoon, as it is a slippery ledge. I hope our four survived.
They hatched in May.
Their feathers are starting to form. Such a miracle of life.
I count 4 chicks from 5 eggs, but stay tuned.
