Nestling waiting to be fed

Readily recognised by its loud duet, commonly rendered as "too-puddly too-puddly too-puddly".... and its snarling warning call. This is a gregarious species, often acting in concert when driving off intruders and roosting together in nest holes. Their flight is direct with a loud whirring of wings.
