Birds of the Day: Eastern Kingbird adult and chick

I heard a bird tweeting loudly and insistently overhead as I approached the pond on my walk today.

It turned out to be this kid, wanting to be fed:

Someone finally responded to the call. I watched rather than photographed. The feeding was fast. If you didn’t know what you were looking at, you might think the adult had merely stopped by to give the child a little kiss on the beak.

The parent took a little break before flying off again.
