chestnut shouldered petronia I saw one late afternoon when the cry of chicks drew my attention. The mother was feeding the two chicks (could be 3 but didnt see clearly, 2 was sure) feeding for 5 seconds and then gone for a minute or two to return back and proceed with ritual. the process continued for an hour. the chicks were crying so loud and trying to come out of hole in the tree. I think it is very easy for chicks to fall from nest asking for food.
