The Cardinal hesitates when he sees me, but he took up courage to feed the fledgling. That maddens me!

I think this is a house finch fledgling. There was also a Yellow Fledgling in the yard. It's exciting to see, but photos got blurred.

I remember it to be smaller, here is another pic, but similar pose before he picked up the bug. Perhaps Song Sparrow Fledgling?

Ahh. Yes, I even created little dialogues
NC: My son doesn't look like me even the slightest.
Cowbird fledgling: One more bite and I will go look for my birth father.

When it comes to Cowbird it is always 'switched before birth'.
