Jacana fathers

I found this information onthe Mother Nature Network website. You can see a picture of Costa Rican Jacanas on our Bird page.

“Male jacanas do all the hard work of making the nests, incubating the eggs and caring for the chicks. While female jacanas gallivant around and mate with as many males as they can, the males make for loyal homemakers, even choosing to stay with the nest long after females have left on their migration. They are such loyal fathers that they often even care for eggs that were fertilized by other males.”
