Teaching the youngster to feed

Newer Older

When I was watching the oyster catcher family last week I was lucky enough to see one of the parents teaching the young chick to feed.
The parent returned to the roof with a beak full of worms and dropped them on the roof several feet away from the young chick and then watched over it while it foraged around and ate them.

    A bird teaching its young one for finding a prey is common, but capturing picture is un common...It is one among that... Even a bird is capable of teaching its young ones..why cant a human teach the other..
