Feeding Twins

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by M. Jacqueline McCurdy

Feeding twins is a full time job for the parents otherwise they will lose one to starvation. After a few days this parent had it down pat so that each chick got a part of the "package" as it regurgitated it up. As you can see from the picture each chick is supported with food. As I watched the chicks would change places and get more or less each time.

Location: Bonita Bay, Bonita Springs, Florida
