Feeding His Mate
Why are you reporting this puzzle?
This is a mated pair of eastern bluebirds. The male entices the female by (among other things) feeding her. When she lays eggs, she will be restricted to the nest, and will be dependent on him to feed her, so the health of the eggs is dependent on BOTH parents. By feeding her now, he not only helps her put on weight that will allow her to make eggs with ample yolk to feed the embryonic bluebirds, but will also prove to her that he is a good provider who CAN be trusted to feed her when she is on the nest tending to their mutual offspring.
