Red-Winged Blackbird chicks opening their mouths, hoping for a tasty bug the instant they hear mom or dad coming.


Red-wing parents are really good at caring for their chicks and there are always enough 'treats' to go around. I have never seen the nestlings left hungry for long. Mom and Dad will even continue to feed and protect their chicks for up to 5 weeks after they leave the nest.


These birds nest close to well-used walkways and are not bothered by respectful humans. And respectful humans do not post bird nest locations on social media :) I've seen too many photographer fights break out at nests that were posted online and that's not good for the birds.
