Birds of prey imprinting on siblings


ūü¶ÖIMPRINTING ON SIBLINGS

As the chick grows, it will become aware of its mother and siblings. The relationship with the siblings has its ups and downs. First, the siblings are a source of warmth, but the competition for food will change this relationship. As one bird can rob the food of another one, the chick will respond mantling over and will defend its food, or it can also carry it away. Some species of birds of prey will avoid hurting each other, but some others like buzzards, kites and some eagles have cases of attacks among chicks, with the oldest one attacking a younger one, often with fatal results. According to Nick Fox, it¬īs a genetically programmed behavior somehow, but it is also dependent on food.
