Ungrateful children

I put some more seed out for the birds this morning, which has attracted the usual motley selection of urban avian life. This has included what I infer from behaviour must be a couple of juvenile starlings... despite their being as big, or bigger, than their parental unit, they still seem keen to follow him/her around on the patio where the seed is, demanding to have it dropped into their beaks, rather than pecking it up from the ground themselves.

I can't help thinking there's a moral in here somewhere.
