Kids are growing rapidly, three of them. Mummy flies out sometimes and makes a short circle either to teach the chicks or just to stretch her wings. Almost every time she is attacked either with RWBB or Eastern Kingbirds as they nest in the area and are very territorial.
Next time I will show you the chicks.

Brave little Redwing! Great illustration- it amazes me how small birds will attack like this, and get away with it!

Looks like the RWB is riding on the osprey's tail. Amazing behavioral image, Karl. Well done!
