American Robin feeding chicks in nest
With the arrival of Spring leaves it becomes increasingly difficult to find and appreciate a occupied bird nest with chicks. So when given the chance we appreciate it even more. Although an American Robin’s nest is not a rarity, we always take a moment to take in the beauty of a scene where both parents feed their chicks.
You won’t always have a clear view. Birds choose their nesting locations carefully. Removing branches to favor your photography is just unacceptable and selfish. This only makes the nest more vulnerable to predators and will add an additional stress to the bird as she nests.
