Hungry chicks - Heron chicks at the beaver pond beg for food. The chicks are born nearly naked with eyes tightly closed. They emit food-begging calls persistently and parents bring them food and regurgitate it into the nest or directly into the open mouths of the chicks. These chicks are a couple weeks old and big enough to stand up and preen but they mostly sleep except for spells of begging.
