The new young bird with a morsel delivered from us by an 'aunt'.
It is fascinating that related adults provide such a support role.
This adult probably was part of 'our' garden family from a year or two ago
and has been with another local group. Somehow she knew about the new arrival at our place
and returned about three weeks ago to help feed and guard the youngster.
She looks very much like the current mother bird,
and I expect she will return to her new clan when our youngster can feed itself.
Best viewed in 'original' format.

other sizes: small medium large original
