This blog is a repository of information on the White-rumped Shama (Copsychus malabaricus) including breeding information, and other songbirds/pets that I keep from time to time. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In previous post, mama bird feeds her chicks. In this post, we can see that papa bird (H1N1) also feeds his chick. From what I observed though my birds, mama bird feed her chicks mostly while the chicks still in the nest (from hatch until about 12 days or so), while papa bird starts to feed his chicks more frequently after the chicks left the nest. The role of mama in feeding her chicks after they left the nest still play an important factor to keep chicks healthy.
