CommentThe life of parents of four demanding teenagers can be quite difficult. This image shows a nearly fully grown juvenile Sparrow assaulting its parent when they returned with food. It got so bad that on a few occasions the adult birds returned with plant matter as the assaults were not as savage if they had something in their beak. These assaults went on all day and I really wondered how much longer the adults could continue.
