The father finch has fullfilled is nest buildinmg
requirements, so he plucks the babies ariound the nexk to
fill the nest, what you can do is, give them a bit of
nesting supply, but make sure they're not covering the
babies, and remember to always give the parent birds enough

everythign to fullfill the bird basic needs which they
cannot get out of seeds.
