It is typical of nearly all bird species to take long care of their offspring. They carefully select sites for nests and build them, sit on eggs and feed chicks, train them and protect them from predators. The instinctive elements of their behavior underlying these processes can be further augmented by experience, which is instrumental to the success of reproduction.
