It’s been a bit of a bullshit week for a few different reasons, so I’m in the mood for something cute. I mean, I am generally always in the mood for something cute, but right now especially. So I’ll share these ridiculously adorable canyon wrens with you. They fledged a couple days later (5 of ’em!). In the photo below, you can see mom or dad looks a little appalled by that one nestling. He (or she) was feeding them a spider. I think said nestling kinda liked it.
Jill Wussow is a seasonal field biologist, nature photographer and nomad. She has worked with several federally endangered bird species (including the Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black-capped Vireo and Piping Plover), sea turtles, and bats all over the United States. She is rarely in one place for more than a few months at a time and her whereabouts are often confusing. Field work has given her great opportunity to travel often and meshes with her passion for wildlife and nature photography perfectly. Through her photography, Jill hopes to convey her love and respect of the natural world.
