The reward

Discussion in 'Birds' started by hangin tree, Jun 24, 2007.

  1. The Adults quit feeding the nest or almost quit and they reward the Chick as it had left the nest.

    This is a behavior series

    This is the actual sequence of feeding.

    She immediately flew off!!!
  2. Obtaining good images is fun, but the behavior of animals I enjoy just as much. . . humans could learn a few things from the "lower" species.
  3. The Adults almost quit feeding the nest, but almost as soon as the chick leaves the adult feeds it. Very interesting behavior!!!

    Thanks Ricco
