Ash-Throated Flycatchers feeding young

Again this year we are fortunate to have ash-throated flycatchers nesting in our yard.  They are actively feeding young in the nest right now - seems a little late - wonder if it's their 2nd go-round with the first being somewhere else.  They are big-bug specialists.  Ebird checklist with photos of one with a praying mantis is below:
It must be nice to have the eyesight to spot these things in the dry grass.  They also bring big dragonflies to their brood.
