Teaching the youngster to feed

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.
