dc.description.abstractThey are of a pale bluish colour varying in the amount of fine reddish spots which are occasionally lacking. They are chiefly incubated by the female for about fifteen days while the male patrols the surrounding area uttering wailing calls at one's approach. Both parents feed the young regularly during the day making sure no one is close by before entering the nest-hole. Their food consists mainly of grasshoppers, worms, beetles and small lizards. After about another fortnight the young birds leave the nest but hang around for some more days during which they are still fed by the parents urged by their hungry calls. When they learn to fend for themselves the parents chase them away.en_GB
