Adult Female with Two Juveniles?
This little group could be a mom and two juvenile fledglings. We know the one with the “dotted” looking throat is a juvenile male. However, we could only tell which of the other birds was the adult mother by knowing if her bill was longer than the other two birds' bills. Those structures take longer to grow.
