Bad parenting! (Starling style)

I want! I want! I want!

Here you are, my little one.

No you can't have it yet.

Ok, ok, head up…

    😆 Great sequence, well done!

    Someone told me once about a starling fledging that was so insistent, a passing blackbird stopped and fed it! :eyes: :chef:

    Great series! I really like the first photo.

    It was fun watching them, but I was shooting against the light which meant I've processed tehm quite heavily to recover some of the detail.

    Very nice observed and interpreted. :up:
