Streaked Flycatcher with chicks

As usual, the nests of different species of birds become frequent in the facilities of the Tinamú Birding Civil Society Natural Reserve, for this new nesting season the Streaked Flycatcher found in the holes of the guaduas where to raise its 2 chicks, which allows us to appreciate the intensity of feeding required by these small insect eaters, from crickets, mantises to large cicadas are part of the menu of these tiny eaters.

Both parents contribute to the care and search for food where sometimes they coincide and manage to satisfy the hunger of the chicks for a few minutes, in other periods of time they take turns taking care of the nest and try to “run around” the human intruders that transit on the balcony, they also fight with tanagers and pigeons that try to approach the shelter tree near their nest.
