Her notes: I was photographing birds when I saw this pair of Wood Stork chicks bowing and calling in unison, and decided it could only be properly shared with […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have a potpourri  of urban wildlife today, starting with reader Anne-Marie Cournoyer’s photos of a red-winged blackbird  (Agelaius phoeniceus) feeding its young in a Montreal backyard: Sated!
