Does Discipline Exist With Other Animals?

When we were at OPPD Arboretum we spotted some birds. They were tweeting like crazy! 

One was up in the grass.

The other 2 were down in the muddy water. Can you see the baby? It's camouflaged.

It looked as though this was a family of 3. The parents were telling their baby, "Get out of the mud! You're going to get stuck, and won't be able to fly away!"

Soon after I took these photos Isaak fell in the muddy water further downstream. Where the water was deeper. It's probably because I wasn't getting after him. I was too busy watching the birds discipline their young. 

Random: Isaak swears that he speaks bird. He tweets a tweeting noise. Birds actually tweet back.

Do you think other animals besides us discipline their young?

How cute that he can tweet with them :)
I believe they do discipline their young just as we do...

I would think they do. They have to learn their behaviors somewhere, right?

Yes I would think so too!

Oh took me a while but I saw the young bird.. good camouflage haha

Oh they definitely discipline their young.... and falling in the water? I used to do so regularly; accidentally on purpose of course. ;-)

I think they probably do. They at least teach them about the dangers in the open, I imagine.

I can imagine they are tweeting hillariously :)...I guess it's just natural that they teach and learn some tricks in the wild for survival..

I swear the geese here are telling their little goslings what to do.
