Feed me!

Wild - - DID YOU KNOW... -

Once the eggs are hatched, par­ents work over­time try­ing to get all their lit­tle ones fed. But how do hatch­lings make sure they get enough to eat? They use their beaks and a good set of pipes! Some bird species, like the Jack­son’s Golden-Backed Weaver, are able to tell one chick’s call apart from the oth­ers. And ju­u­u­u­u­ust in case the par­ents aren’t lis­ten­ing, the hun­grier a chick gets, the longer and more high pitched its calls be­come.
