The same Great Blue Heron parent as seen in the last slide, now hunting more fish for the fledglings.

I used to worry about how the food is allocated to the fledglings. My fear was that the biggest would get fed and just get bigger and bigger while the smallest got nothing.

But now I think the parents put so much food into the nest that the fledglings can eat when they are hungry.
