NO...Feed me First Dad!!!!

By KevinMW  
Feed Me! NO, Feed me first!, NOOOOOH, Feed me NOW!!!

Taken this morning after watching several juvenile House Sparrows being fed seed from a neihbour's feeder by the Parents.

This one youngster kept getting so impatient, it kept jumping on the back of its siblings to try and get fed first.

In the end, I think the Dad decided, enough was enough and flew off without giving them any.!!

F7.2 at 300mm, 1/200th, ISO500

Hope you enjoy as much as I did. It was quite funny. lol.

Thanks for all previous C&C's and for looking.

The juveniles always appear bigger than the adults. Never understood that!
