One day only the downy's fed their young on the perches near our feeders. Here the adult is on top with the juvenile on the lower side -- and yes the juvenile looks as large as the adult.  Notice the different positions of the red patch; by late summer the patch on the youngster will also be at the back of the head. Shot on Provia-F film at ISO 160 with a 600mm lens at f-4 and 1/200sec.
