This young male and his sister came with their parents – he with mom and sister with dad (I call them Lord and Lady Redbird). He looks like he is waiting to do the feed-me flutter with his wings slightly open! The adults have been coming for over a year, sometimes together, sometimes separately. Often one would sit in the bush as they took turns on the ground or on the feeder. One day the adult male sat on the fence and serenaded the world! I have a picture of him mid-tweet! Now I still have a male and female coming but cannot guess if it is the Lord and Lady Redbird or their offspring.
