Mother Grackle Teaching Young Grackle To Drink

You don't see this everyday. A mother grackle has brought her fledgeling to the water bath for the first time to show it how to drink. Notice how the fledgeling keeps demanding food/drink from it's mother and how the mother will demonstrate how to drink then give some drink directly to the fledgeling's mouth.



The next day I noticed the same fledgeling again.  Notice his mother isn't so willing to feed him this time.
