Previous generation. Wow, kid got a worm. This is huge progress.
Non, no... don't try eating garbage.
So big, but not yet mature

More kids

How do you find the kids?  Follow the food.
Huge nestlings
You have to look around. Fledgling from previous nest.
Not going to get fed. Parent busy with nestlings.
Fledglings from different parents, other side of garden.
Time to learn how to find food.
But this fledgling wants food from adult. Not going to happen.
Survival of the fittest. Time to find own food. Parent knows this.

Other side of garden. Different family, older fledglings still dependent.
Front garden. Signs are to be disregarded.
