We have a "repurposed" citrus feeder, made from a plastic whisk we purchased at a thrift store. Today a pair of Verdins showed up to snack on the orange we had put out.

 Normally the birds visit one at a time, but we noticed that this was a baby Verdin accompanied by one of its parents.

The baby perched impatiently, waiting to be fed by the parent.

It would flutter and gape expectantly each time the parent bird reached over to stuff bits of orange in the youngster's beak.

They remained perched and feeding for a couple of minutes, taking their time with the juicy treat before flying off together to the next feeding station.
