Fledgling, caught red handed by duncan-blues Fledgling, caught red handed by duncan-blues
Blue tit fledgling, caught red handed at a fatball.

"What is it?
Why are you looking at me that way?
Is this prohibited?"

:D


This blue tit fledgling and it's parents have been whizzing around the neighborhood all evening. Flight training I presume. The parents kept flying to a tree and were calling for their young until it followed, then flying on to the next tree/balcony/satellite dish etc.
A few times, they stopped at the half-empty fatball that's still hanging from our satellite dish on our balcony from last winter. After the mother has been pecking at the bird seeds inside for a while, the young had to try as well.
