Cuckoo chick being fed by its host - HD stock video

Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus) chick being fed by its host, a reed warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus). The warbler also removes the chick's faecal sac. Cuckoos are brood parasites, with the females laying a single egg in the nest of another bird species. Common host species include reed warblers, dunnocks and pipits. The cuckoo chick pushes the host's eggs out of the nest soon after hatching. Host parents are good at recognising cuckoo eggs, but once hatched, are compelled to feed the chick, even when it is many times larger than they are. Filmed in Lincolnshire, England, UK
