Several young black phoebes in their nest. Many scats accumulated below the nest and I also found a pellet composed of compacted insect parts.
 
parent Black Phoebe watching over its nest
Both phoebe parents were around and both were bringing food to the nest. This one has something in its beak. Perhaps an insect to feed the youngsters.
