    I did not know they fed them berries. I had always assumed it was protein only. Great photos and thanks for the informative set.

    Thanks, guys! I assumed insects would be the chicks' main diet as well, but apparently the adults feed them a mix of berries, bugs, larvae, caterpillars, and whatever else they can harvest... Really fun to watch this, too... The chick are only about 4 days old, so I've got another 8-10 days to capture more images before they fledge... :)

    Reason for asking metering is the exposure is so even without even a hint of that green cast images like that often posses. Again great shot.
