I’m finding it very interesting that one of the local nests (sturdy, mud) has one baby chough being fed by 10 adults while a  Crested Pigeon nest (flimsy, sticks)  is attended by one pair of birds which have already had two young ones fledge and leave and the pair has started to incubate again.  Neil Hermes’ book says that they may have up to 6 clutches a year!
