Waiting for the females, the males mostly spend their time in search of food. Between this vital lesson, they sing, praising the ordinances of awakening of nature, its beauty and generosity. When the snow leaves, the surface can be found from the seeds and from the ground there are the first insects. In the future they will make up a large part of the diet of Buntings. It is very important that insects will be abundant, because the offspring need to bring up. They will serve as first-time parents to feed the Chicks. In the early days the Chicks are fed invertebrates to grind food from the goitre of the parent (male or female).

When the Chicks are able to accept the whole insect, the parents carry them grasshoppers, woodlice, spiders and insects of other species.

Life in captivity
