A male Black-throated Green Warbler straightens up after feeding his fledgling, which is still holding a small brown grasshopper under its tongue. I was very lucky to catch this intimate moment. Hidden among some ferns, I had been watching the fledgling for a bit but did not expect an adult to come feed it with me so close by. Young fledglings do not usually flush because their wings are still developing and flight is a costly alternative to simply staying still and camouflaged. The male ended up ignoring me, however, and came to feed the fledgling four times as I watched.
