What’s for lunch?

Here I come mom wm

Somehow I managed to focus and noticed the arrival of a goldfinch…as it turned out the bird on the branch was…the mother and the incoming bird was one of it’s “babies”. 

Soon two more “babies” arrived and one exhibited wing flapping behavior…usually this is a little one begging mom for food.

Flapping for attention wm

Sure enough…mom produced a tasty morsel and popped it into the little mouth.

One of the other babies jumped in and asked mom to open wide, hoping for a nibble.

Use this Any more food in there? wm

There’s always someone who isn’t willing to patiently wait, to say the least. I think sitting on mom’s tail feathers is a really pushy move.

So there you have it…a mom teaching her babies where food can be found, while at the same time, continuing to feed them until they can do it for themselves.
