Have you ever had the privilege of seeing a bird feeding its young?

Because I'm always on the lookout for birds, I often see some incredible sights. Watching a parent bird feed its chicks is a wonderful experience. Have you ever had that privilege? Do you know what sort of birds they were?

A few years ago, I noticed a bird nest in my back patio. Not long after that there were some chicks in the nest. It was lovely, and every day we would wait until the mother flew off for food, then the kids and I would use a ladder to take a peek at the babies. I believe they were Honeyeaters.
Lucky you. Friends in Perth had one nest in their hanging basket, and my niece in London had Robins nesting in a hollow in the bricks at her front door. Her husband was able to record their progress with a video camera.

Used to all the time when we lived on rural property. We had lots of families of all kinds of birds in our yard. I really miss that.
No. That would be a sight to see!
We had a nest of Oregon Junkos outside out rental last year. The caretaker exposed the nest when he cut the lawn, luckily he didn't cut it so short as to disturb the nest. We saw the chicks as soon as they were born. Unfortunately a few days later a local outdoor cat came along and that was the end of the chicks. Between the lawnmower and the cat, the poor guys were doomed. We did, however, get to see the chicks get fed a few times before their untimely end.
Unfortunately, I have not had this privilege.

Yes I have but I am not good with identifying birds so can't tell you what type they were. All that I can tell you is one was very hungry and the other was very accomodating in meeting their needs.
