Dad taking his turn feeding his chicks

In this video mum is sitting on the nest with the chicks underneath her when dad comes in with some delicious looking caterpillars! Mum makes way for dad to feed some of the chicks before flying back out for more food.

 

At the moment it is a constant feeding frenzy in the bird box with both parents flying in and out to bring back caterpillars for their chicks.

When they first hatched we counted 8 beaks (out of 9 eggs) but with so many growing bodies and beaks it’s now difficult to tell how many we have!

 

The chicks are now 6 days old and as you can see they have grown an enormous amount in those 6 days since they were born!

 

Sorry for the lack of updates but due to technical issues with our e-mail we are having huge problems getting the videos of our chicks
