Great daddo 2013-01-26 19:53

Salam Zahoor. Interesting story, but sounds like something from Disneyland with its anthropomorphic style where animals talk and have human feelings. This is the first time that i have read an account away from Disneyland where a bird is supposedly showing a streak of jealousy. I do not believe such an interpretation and it could well be that females of this species of bird normally do not take responsibility neither for the hatching of eggs nor for the feeding of chicks later. To make your version credible (and that would mean that birds feel anger, jealousy, revenge etc) you would need to find another nesting pair and study their behaviour. Still, I found your story interesting as it revelas more about you than the birds- mainly your love of birds and your perseverance. Best wishes. Klaudio.

This is not a story from Disneyland and it is very easy to criticize without proof. Please identify your experience or at least a reference

to your statement!!!

From now I will answer to your comment with a solid proof and reference. Both male and female take equal responsibility for hatching of

eggs and feeding chicks later. I observed this myself and as a proof, have a look at the following shots I took myself.

In this image the female is sitting on the eggs.

This image shows the female feeding the chicks.

As a direct proof have a look at this wiki link showing the female in the nest in second last image on the right side! Also read ecology

and behaviour as well.

Please avoid such ridiculous comments in future!!!
