Common Myna feeding chicks mushroom??

Going through my photos from yesterday and found this one I knew I had captured the parent feeding the young but didn't realise until I took a closer look tonight that it appears the parent bird is feeding the young a mushroom.

Who told the birds about the protein in mushrooms?? :/

Very interesting. Wish those pesky mynahs would get back to nesting in eaves and gutters and leave the tree hollows for the natives though!
