You're Not Single Anymore-DAD!

The guys tried to tell you getting mated wasn't all fun and games but you didn't listen.

Dad feeding a seed to a fledgling who either can't figure out how the feeder works or is just used to having the food put in its mouth.

1. Dad and kid sharing the feeder with a sparrow.
2. The kid won't stop cheeping to be fed, the sparrow hid on the back side of the feeder.
3. Dad gives in and feeds the kid, this was about the 4th or 5th time in a short time frame and the sparrow decides to go eat at a quieter place.

80D, Tamron 150-600 G2 @ 600, 1/1600 @ f/6.3, ISO for #1 & #3 1600 and #2 1250-partly cloudy and light was changing

Picture number three qualifies this series as a BIF.
We either need a separate BIRDS topic or change this one to just plain BIRDS and yes I realize that by specifying BIF or on water you make the posters work a bit more to get their shots and cut down on the number of shots posted. For the on water part I could go to the park and then post a million shots taken from one spot of ducks, geese etc. etc. but I don't. At least I either try to make my shots more than just snapshots or a photo essay telling a story and I am sure many others would also. It isn't as if every shot posted now is art. In fact many I could get by handing a P&S to a little kid and turning them loose at the park pond.

Now will this get tossed/moved or will I get told to not post here again unless it is a BIF or Bird on Water? Oh, does a bird just splashing the heck out of a bird bath count as "on water"?

Jr keeps up the cheeping to be fed and the sparrow goes to the back side for some peace and quiet. It doesn't work so ...

Thank you. I like photographing birds and get a good number in my yard. Plus boredom being restricted and kept home a lot helps put me behind a camera looking at the yard a lot.

The strange little stories etc. come from a twisted sense of humor/imagination made worse by 35 years of teaching Jr and Sr High School. I should work that out of my system a bit before my 100th birthday if I make it that far. And reading sci fi and fantasy since elementary school helps too.
