Lesser Goldfinch - Fledgling Feeding

My wife and I took a stroll through TRNWR this evening to get out and enjoy the first day of Summer. During our walk I noticed a small yellowish bird flapping its wings rather vigorously in a nearby tree. It turned out to by a Lesser Goldfinch fledgling as only moments later an adult male swooped in and began feeding the youngster. The picture at the top doesn't illustrate it well, but the fledgling keep flapping it wings during most of the feeding.
