little birds waiting for feeding

A bird family lived in the balcony of my apartment.The mother bird was in and out of their nest finding food and feeding everyday during that period of time.When the mother bird was out, the four little birds just waited at their nest; when the mother bird came back to the nest, the four little birds kept their mouth open widely until their mom left.The mother bird can only feed one little bird once, and she can kept doing this the whole morning.
