Throwing a Tantrum

Very early morning in the suburb of Oaklands, Johannesburg, the female of a pair of migrating Wattled Plovers who had adopted our garden as the nesting place to raise their chicks, was found standing on one leg and looking particularly disinterested in its chicks. This appeared to annoy one of her chicks who turned in defiance and bellowed its head off in a tantrum.
