Olive-back Sunbirds Feeding Chicks

I realised there are two chicks and in this video you see how fatherly the male bird is. As he chirps, he watches over the whole process and stays behind while female bird flies off to get more food. Does anyone know if the chirping is to warn mother bird of danger or to indicate to chicks it is feeding time? I took this using my digital camera, not a video camera. Bird #1 is male.
