This is the time of year when we often see hungry baby birds appear in Bird Alley. The adult parenting bird often can be seen feeding her hungry young. Above can be seen a young Purple Finch demanding to be be fed by the adult bird beside it.
And in this case the adult female Purple Finch has leaned in to share a bit of bird seed with the hungry fledgling.
Above the young Downy Woodpecker appears to be very insistent with its open beak demanding food.
And in response to its demands, the adult male Downy Woodpecker deposits some bird seed into the open beak of the young woodpecker.
