Chow Time...

This is another video of the same little birds from last post. Had to put the camera on the shrub and move away for this one. The quality is not so great but, think it looks alright.






These were taken in this morning, but took a long time to upload, and then for Vimeo and YouTube to process it. Now only got the chance to post these. Hope they are interesting. It wasn't possible to take this without the background noise ( talking etc.. ), as few construction workers were working at my place.

What's this nonsense about the quality? That's a great video. Hope you will be able to watch them grow (and hopefully capture some of it on film)

@e4c5 nah, just that lot of other stuff on YouTube is better quality n all.. ;) guess i should quit worrying about quality.. :) thanks for the re-tweet btw.

It was actually lucky to get both the parents feeding them on the clip. Normally they come like 15-20 minutes apart from each other. But at this one time, they came at the same time, and we actually get to see both the parents feeding. Glad they didn't cover the cam, while they were feeding.

nice one. the quality is fine as e4c5 noted. how did you manage to get so close to them? anyways nice video. I've never seen birds feeding there young ones, so closely like that.

@Yasith I actually left the camera inside the shrub. These birds don't really stay when i get close, and keep making weird noises from a bit away.

Wow that's a great video. And the quality is awesome too. You can actually see the green food item that the parent bird gave on one of the little bird's neck. It's a good shot.

@thilanka yeah..these birds can eat! i thought the one that swallowed that big green thing would be done for the day!! but man, they were up and asking for more in like 30-minutes later!
