‘More!’ Demanding (Bird) Babies

Mother! Didn't you hear me? I need Feeding! Now!I am told feeding on demand is now (once again) the fashion and preferred choice for many mothers and professionals for human babies but it would apper that this is nature’s way too.

We have already shown but will again here on the right let you see John’s photos of our little trio of blue tits who wore ther parents out with their constant open mouths always, always wanting ‘More’ with not a hint of a please or a thank you.

Hungry Baby Goldfinch Babies at Orchard FarmJohn has just been down to see Patti B’s swallows, lodging in one of their stables. Just look at their open, demanding mouths in the photo on the left. He will shortly be putting up more of these in our photo gallery but I just thought these were rather fun. Meanwhile, to finish off here is a photo of a goldfinch baby being fed. You can’t see his open mouth but you can see why they open them so wide. The parents have to put their entire beak right into the baby’s mouth.
