Feeding Time – πŸ“Έ by @sarymely

For birds that transport food to their mates and/or their young over long distances, it is impractical to carry food in their bills because of the risk that it would be stolen by other birds.

To combat this, such birds often employ a regurgitative feeding strategy.

Some birds even have a food button! Many species of gulls have an orange to red spot near the end of the bill (called a “subterminal spot”) that the chicks peck in order to stimulate regurgitation.

The only thing left to do is stick your head down your mothers throat and get it!
