Slate-throated redstart nestlings in Peru fledge, video

This video says about itself:

19 September 2017

Both Slate-throated Redstart nestlings fledged this past weekend on the morning of Saturday, September 16th! Watch highlights of the young fledglings’ last minutes in the nest, including the chicks’ final feedings, the nestlings’ rocket launch style approach at fledging, and the adult’s realization that both the chicks had left the nest.

The fledglings will now head out into the cloud forest of Peru on their own, and their parents will continue to provide food for a few weeks before they become independent. Thanks to our friends and partners at Inkaterra​ for helping to provide this experience!
