.htaccess redirect help of ‘?feed=rss2’

I recently moved my blog from the base of www.santarmj.staging.wpengine.com to www.santarmj.staging.wpengine.com/blog (and then filled in the balance of the site). I considered the need to redirect the feed, and established a .htaccess file in the root with one line:
‘redirect permanent /feed/ https://securitycatalyst.com/blog/feed/’

It works and feedburner works (for most it’s only 1, maybe 2 redirects). Turns out, however, that iTunes is looking for https://securitycatalyst.com/?feed=rss2

I have spent a few days and 2 hours this evening pouring through the forums and trying every combination of code I can find to be able to redirect https://securitycatalyst.com/?feed=rss2 to https://securitycatalyst.com/blog/feed/

I’m finding no joy.

The current .htaccess includes:

Redirect permanent /feed/ https://securitycatalyst.com/blog/feed/
#redirect the ?feed=rss2 people, namely iTunes
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^rss=1$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://securitycatalyst.com/blog/feed/ [R=301,L]

I would love some insights or guidance. Clearly, I’m doing something wrong and hopefully missing something that is obvious to those of you who understand code better than me.

Suggestions, insights?

Tired of feeling defeated on Friday?

Where the stack of work to get done is bigger than what got finished. You dread next week before the weekend even begins.

It doesn’t have to be this way.
