Animal Behaviour - Himalayan Bulblul distracting intruders from chicks

We have recently spotted two himalayan bulbul chicks right out of their nest trying to fly for the first time. Apparently, their nest was inside a bathroom near a house. So when the mother bulbul spotted humans near the chicks who are trying to fly for the first time, it started showing a peculiar behavior.

Watch the Himalayan Bulbul trying to distract the intruders.

 The bird, with its wings and tail spread to the maximum view, was literally running all over the place in the opposite direction of where the chicks were siting. It was making a peculiar sound. Obviously, it was pretending as if it can not fly. this could be a way to distract a potentail enemy from the chicks. The intruder by following the prominent and bigger bird than the silent and static chicks will move away from them.
