Great image Julia.
Like the composition with the branch leading up to the adult.
Why do I keep imagining the middle bird as got a voice like Joe Pasquale? Wink

Aw, I've never seen junior chaffinches. They're like hybrids beween sparrows and adults.

Brilliant in every way! Well done. An absolute corker of an image!
Doesn't the middle bird seem to be pointing at the lower, more morose one, as if shifting the blame, just as human siblings are like to do! "It wasn't me, Mum, it was HIM!" (or HER!...whichever you prefer.)
