THIS greedy baby bird looks like he trying to bite off more than he can chew.

The startling picture captures the moment a newly fledged and extremely hungry baby starling nearly swallows his parent’s head while his siblings watch on.

Captured in a Brighton back garden by award-winning photographer Simon Dack this family of birds were out enjoying the warm weather.

The sunny skies are expected to continue until Friday when the rain returns.

Starlings usually lay their eggs in the middle of April and the chicks take about five weeks to become independent from their parents.

According to the RSPB they are fed entirely on a diet of insects, spiders and earthworms for the first 12 days of their life before their diet becomes more varied.
