House Sparrow #9

House Sparrow 009

An images of a young House Sparrow that was in my back yard. He is perched on the handle of my hedge trimmer that I left hanging on a back fence. I don’t take to many pictures of these little bird but they are actually quit common around here and in significant numbers. I pretty much don’t pay any attention to them for some reason or another, maybe I just find them a little bland for myself. He’s a bird just the same so I thought that I would through him in for today, enjoy 🙂


  1. Nice little guy. I like Sparrows. They have an interesting social life, human-like, sometimes.

      They hang around in large group here as well and they may be family groups. You never see one at a time its always a small group of 5 to 6 birds or more.

  2. I guess these birds are common pretty much worldwide. However they have almost disappeared from London, where the iconic ‘cheeky sparrer’ has almost disappeared. No one knows why. So it’s become a rare treat for a Londoner to see one! Plenty in Abaco though… RH

      I did not know that about the Cheeky Sparrow and they have on idea to what is going on with them? I had hear that sparrows and bunting species are found world wide. Hopefully they are all a resilient little bird. MT

    A bird’s picture is always pleasant to the eyes and especially if the shot is well composed. I enjoy that.

    There are massive numbers of House Sparrows where I live. The local birding community disparages them as “nuisances”. I like them and put a feeder in a bush near my writing window so I can watch them. Maybe I relate to their social status. Thanks for the pretty pic.

      Thank you Kat for your comment on this post. Sorry that it took me so long to reply. My feeders are right out side of the dinning rooms window and there is a lot of activity around them. Most of the time it is the sparrows but I do get a present mix of birds. I would not label them as being a nuisances though. Have a great day Kat 🙂
