13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

A tropical bird built a nest in a local family's potted plant in Penang, Malaysia. Every day when I was there, I carefully observed the baby birds in the nest. I was luckily rewarded by seeing the mother bird bringing food to the nest and feeding her young.
