I love it when I get a shot of a bird eating. I have photographed most of the bird species in my area when they are perched or swimming. To find one in the act of eating is rare so to get a picture of it in the act is rather special. I went through some of my pics and selected a few I wanted to share with you.
Our first pic is of a female Red-winged Blackbird with a bug in her mouth. I’ve seen the them eat bugs and seeds – the bugs are more interesting.
Speaking of bugs, here’s a Red-headed Woodpecker with what looks like a couple of spiders in its beak.
Squeamish from the bugs? How about some Sushi for a Green Heron?
Remember the Western Tanager we had in western Chicagoland a couple of years ago. Several of us went out there and submitted pictures of it here. This is a shot of it eating a plump red berry.
Seeds are good, too. Here’s a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak munching on some seeds she found by the side of the trail.
Well I don’t know about you, but I’m getting hungry!
