We are continuing to record the behaviours of the barbets in this nest. We believe the nestlings (two of them, to be exact) will be leaving nest near the end of the week since the nestling(s) is poking its head out of the nest quite frequently now (i.e. getting more interested and curious about the outside world).
Nevertheless, the nestlings (left photo) still have a lot of growing to do before it reaches the colorful plumage of its father (right photo).
Eat this cicada and grow stronger, my children. It's time for me to find more food for you.
While watching the male barbet feeding its children every 20 to 30 minutes or so, two very handsome Black-crowned Night Herons had captured my attention.
What a beautiful black head you have there, Mr. Night Heron.
