One creature’s nuisance
becomes another’s banquet
Blackbird nesting zone
This is another photo taken from our recent visit to the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. The bird is a male red-winged blackbird surrounded by a feast of flying insects (those soft black dots would be “nutriments” for the bird). We watched him catch many of these in flight from his cattail perch. I, however, am annoyed by all those nuisance insects flying around me.
