Nice one butterfly. Don't get them myself even though they are in the general area.

Nice to have butterfly. Not had them in my garden. But they eat a lot.

That one looks very young. It is a little while since I had one that young although I have adult birds every day.

They do have healthy appetite :D , but I wouldn't say they eat more than woodies, or pigeons, or even starlings :shrug:

It does look very young, its feathers are still fluffy baby feathers, and it doesn't have its collar at all, such a sweet thing :) . The adult pair are the regular visitors to my feeders, I am guessing these are their offspring.
