|Notes||Second clutch of Chicks: On Tuesday the 2nd of October I noticed the chirping sounds coming from the another nest with chicks. This nest belongs to the same male who has has the chick in the other nest. There are 2 chick in this nest This is a very different feeding pattern as the first nest, as I have noticed both male and female feeding the chicks. I have recorded the time it takes the female to leave the nest and come back with food to feed the 2 chicks: 3 min 52 sec 1 min 44 sec 1 min 48 seconds Theses times are all taken right after one another, and this happens all day long. I presume the pressure of a second chick means that the male has to assist. Even the female weaver comes to the sugar feeder quite often which shows how busy she is. This is a very different situation to the other chick. I will send a separate data form for them right after this one. I have tried to see what the adults are feeding the chicks, but I am struggling to identify the food for now.|
