I have just been watching the little scrounging Red Wattlebird demanding food from an adult.  The adult duly appeared with an ex-Orchard Butterfly which it passed to junior.  Junior appeared to have trouble organising this snack for ingestion and dropped it. After a spectacular power dive by the adult the prey was re-gathered taken back to the juvenile.  This process was repeated three more times before the adult got fed up and flew away.  Perhaps I should withdraw the proposal for IY and replace it with a suggestion for SRY (Spoiled Rotten Young)?
