Pay attention to how the mother pigeon feeds the baby. The baby pushes its beak inside the mother's beak and draws 'pigeon milk' from the mother's crop. This milk is highly nutritious and is produced from grains within the crop - a chamber inside the mother's neck. After a period of feeding the baby is still hungry, but the mother is already tired. After a few tries the squab gives up and crawls under the mother for comfort.
