Helping out the wild birds who are raising their young at the moment with some nourishing insects - because most baby (song) birds are fed insects only by their parents. :-)

Black Redstart (female) ~ Hausrotschwanz (Weibchen) ~ Phoenicurus ochruros 

When it is difficult for me to leave the house to take pictures because I have to look after the orphaned baby birds I’m hand-raising at least once per hour, sometimes I’m lucky and the birds come to me. :-) The Redstarts have opted for breeding a second time this year. I’m curious when they will present their young to me.
