Photo of a male resplendent quetzal, bringing food home to its mate and chicks. After bringing back enough snacks, the male will take his turn guarding the kids, while his mate goes off to forage.
The male is usually responsible for teaching the chicks to fly. He coaxes one of his chicks to the door of the nest, then models flight until the chick takes to the air. The second chick then learns by copying the first one.
