Getting Bigger and Bolder

.
The three young Western Kingbirds at LSC-CyFair are getting bigger and bolder every day. On Friday they were feeling brave enough to move into separate trees.

While I was watching, a parent flew in and one of the youngsters immediately joined it and was rewarded with food.


A second youngster was quick to follow its sibling and it, too, was rewarded.




The third chick stayed where it was.




It was soon fed by the other parent, while the other chicks complained loudly at missing out on this round of food.
