Anhinga Chicks Feeding

Anhinga Feeding Chicks (3)

After the adult Anhinga finished feeding the one chick, the unfed chick started to pester his sibling.

He used the same chewing on the beak method all the young use on the parent when they return to the nest.

I couldn’t tell if the second chick got any food from the first one or if this was all show. The adult didn’t stick around to find out.

  1. Great action shots, Ellen, they do make you wonder if the second could feed from the first. Although, as ‘mean’ as the oldest can be, you’d think he’d definitely not share. But who knows! I love photos that show and question unusual happenings. 🙂
