Description:

One of 4 fledglings seen as part of a family visiting the garden. They weren't as skilled as the adults on the bird table and occasionally "begged" for food from the adults, neither of which made any real effort to feed them. The male adult often flew at other bird species to chase them from the food, so that the youngsters could feed uninterrupted.
