In this scene, the Heron on the left is letting one of the chicks chew on it's bill.

Great Blue Herons regurgitate partially digested food to feed their young. So it is natural for the chick to be "attacking" the parents bill for food.

But in this scene, I think the parent is just playing with the chick as in, time to play with the kids. Sweet!
