a mother gallinule feeding her chick in Green Cay Nature Center

This common gallinule mother came out of the dense reeds with her chick to both feed it and show it how food was found. The chick was very young and showed little interest in "hunting" for food itself, preferring yet to be beak fed by its mother.
