I adore this picture. This is yet another Western Kingbird nest with four young chicks being fed by their hard working parents. When I look at the chicks in the nest I see little baby birds, defenseless and helpless and vulnerable... and then I look to the left to see the adult Kingbird standing vigil over its young ones, a calm and comforting look upon its face.
