This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Feeding the Birds.’ See more responses here.

There’s one kind of bird feeder that has stood the test of time. An example of it is this Common Waxbill feeding a couple of youngsters.

    Beautiful shot. I see you think they’ll be independent soon. We had a magpie chick being fed every day ( from the dog’s bowl) and making a huge racket. It went for about three months so despite the size, it was fed for a while.

      These two seemed pretty mellow. Barely a peep out of them and they just accepted the food. Today, I was watching some Saffron Finches and the two youngsters, both quite big, were badgering the parents without pause. They won’t be independent for a while!
