Pigeon pair … not quite

Common Bronzewings are a permanent fixture in the garden. They nest usually in dense shrubs – the flimsy structure is hard to find, so the first evidence of breeding is the appearance of young birds scuttling around near the parents. These two fledglings had a major size difference, although even the smaller one was capable of weak flight.

The second fledgling was much larger.
