Oriental white-eye nesting

seen here was the parent clearing one of her baby's poo while his siblings looked on waiting for their turns

This pair of extremely capable parent brought up not 1 not 2 not 3 but 4 little ones in a tiny little nest. Not all fledged at the same time. The parents never leave any of their chick behind. They continue to feed the last remaining one until he was ready to leave the nest 2 days later than its siblings. .
