Parent dunnock today training 2 babies. Into the ground feeding cage, select a tasty, hop out again, feed youngster and wait for copy.
Nothing.
Parent repeated formula - nothing.
On and on.

Babies obviously cuter than parent. Why bother when the food comes anyway.

Mum/dad might have had more success had it stayed inside the cage and scoffed the food.
They would have followed double-quick then !!

Great to see :D

I'm always amazed at the learning curve for some species of bird when they fledge. Most waterbird are feeding themselves almost from the moment they hatch while birds of prey are seemingly fed by the parents for months.
