Spoiled Chipping Sparrow Baby

Mother Chipping Sparrow continues to feed her newly fledged young on day three out of the nest. But one youngster remains totally dependent and is being seriously spoiled. I put a mark on the little one's butt/feet and it literally does not move one inch in over five minutes standing on a pile of seeds while mom frantically runs back and forth to feed it. It's siblings have moved on.
