Young baby jacanas are known as “downies” and are capable of walking and swimming as soon as they’ve hatched.  Their father will not feed them, instead guiding them to feed and demonstrating how to hunt and uncover prey.  He will also keep a close eye on them; shortly after hatching, the father will clear the eggshells out of the nest, possibly to deter predators, and will coo at and brood his new family.  If he cannot find one of his chicks, the father will call loudly to try and attract it, and if a predator is detected, he will scream to summon the chicks’ larger and more powerful mother.  He will guard and nurture his little family for 40 to 70 days.
