Description

This is a short clip from a video of the 3rd nest of birds fledging last year from our front yard nest box. This older sibling fed the remaining birds between babies fledging. Several of the older babies fed the third babies and some of the young fed the new fledgling on the feeder too.

    Cool, Randy! Helping behavior in Eastern Bluebirds is not commonly documented, so this is a nice clip showing this behavior.
