Sparrow in the City by taffy

Sparrow in the City

Today's photo is in my extras album. This one is from my photo walk on Saturday -- I thought it captured a city bird's life which is more about bricks and cement than trees and ponds.
Thank you all for your visits and comments on my recent shots. I appreciate the Chanukah wishes, had fun reading your responses to the wooden owl in the tree, and was glad you liked the sunset triptych. Starting tomorrow through Saturday, I'm going to be tied up at a conference. I'm hoping to be able to post but am pretty sure I'll have limited time to comment. I know everyone is really busy, so know you'll understand -- I'll catch up on Sunday and into the following week (final exams and projects) and then it's BREAK!!!!
He is so cute! Love the pov and little expression (???) on his face....almost a longing look.

Oh, cute little city bird. I am not sure they really know they have a "city life" or a 'Hard time" or not. They probably just know what they know. cute pic! You sound super busy! I have three weeks until Winter break from school..two weeks off! I cannot wait!

Ahhh this made me think of The Baron Knights song "I'm only a poor little sparrow..." a british and very funny comedy group from the 70's that were pretty huge over here.
A superb shot as these little blighters are so hard to get, well done!

@leananiemand Thanks Leana! I did think that the bricks and mortar were important to conveying the way the urban world surrounds the bird.
