It is a moving scene of a little egret family! Little egret parents feed their chicks by a method that is very different from what other birds do. They first swallow the food they find for their chicks and then fly back to the nest, and finally regurgitate the swallowed but undigested food directly into the bills of the chcks. The process is sometimes painful for the parents! A scene like this makes one feel that these birds are as devoted, selfless and hard working as mankind in the caring for their young.
