Amazing image from the nest cam!
I was so lucky to catch this. The mama bird zipped off the (filthy) nest, and then zoomed by the back of it. That's her behind the nest.
Isn't the baby precious? He keeps getting the tip of his bill stuck on spiderwebs in the nest, and isn't quite strong enough to break the thread unless he wiggles vigorously while mama feeds him. He remains tethered pitifully until she returns.
