never saw the parents with them but I am sure these are baby yellowhammers taking a bath in my stream.OH thought they look a bit like greenfinches which made me doubt my ID

baby starling and the questionable yellowhammer.Saw the adult yellowhammers but they never came to feed the young ones

What a treat Sheila, it just goes on getting better in your garden! Lovely to see them.

Lovely pics! I'd have gone with yellowhammer too because of the white outer tail feathers and no yellow on the wing but the mum has confirmed the ID for you!
