Double-barred Finch

Double-barred Finch (Image ID 40456)
CommentA special moment captured as the adult feeds its young. Deciding which hungry mouth to feed first depends on which juvenile puts on the best display of ‘Pick me, pick me! Look, I’m so hungry I can only vibrate my wings and I’m so weak I can only lay here like a trembling wreck and I have my head on the side so you can just pour the food in’. Me, I just had to make it a competition worthy photo.
