Feral Liberal has let us use this wonderful shot of a Redwinged blackbird nest with chicks. I like it for several reasons, but one of the main ones is that you can tell great care is being taken not to alarm the birds.
Hungry chicks with mouths open must appeal to us all. And you know the mother blackbird is out there working herself to the bone for them.
As all of us love these lovely shots, I'm also including a reference to mom on the nest from feral liberal's stash of great shots; http://www.flickr.com/photos/feralliberal/562653740/
Here is a picture of the full sized bird:
