Determined by: paired
Ageadults and two chicks
Determined by: plumage, size
Behaviortwo very small chicks were fighting and the parents came over and got between them evidently to stop the fight, then sang loudly. Some of the higher-pitched calls might be from the chicks but they were rather far away.
