Drifter is equipped with a very generous natural fly swat.
However he has decided it is easiest to outsource fly control in his stable to an efficient family run group of specialists.
There appear to be at least 4 chicks, all of which look like something created by Jim Henson, with those wide yellow mouths and grey fuzzy heads. Wikipedia tells me that in all likelihood the parents, both of whom feed the chicks (in fact they nearly crashed into each other today trying to go to the nest at the same time) are at each feeding delivering a bolus of between 10 and 100 insects at a time. I have to hand it to Drifter – that is a lot more efficient than swishing your tail at the flies!
