This video was recorded in Eastern Massachusetts in late May. The adults are making frequent food deliveries to the nestlings who are near fledging. The caterpillars of an invasive moth that is doing major damage to our woodlands accounted for most of their diet during this period. The video was shot with a Canon EOS 7d and 600mm f4L Canon lens and is best viewed in full HD.
