Kirtland’s warbler defends its nestling, video


This video from the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center in the USA says about itself:

20 August 2014

Adult male Kirtland’s Warbler defending nestling during the banding process. Note when he pretends to have broken wing when he lands on the scale.

Fortunately, after the banding the nestling went back into the nest, and the parent could relax.
