Bluebirds in nesting box video

Using small GoPro cameras, the researchers were able to measure parental behavior in the nest. They were able to quantify incubation rates by females and feeding rates by both parents. In this video, you can see a female eastern bluebird incubating eggs and a male eastern bluebird rotating the eggs and feeding chicks prey items. If you look closely, you can also see the male keep part of the earthworm for himself.
