Im an every day ordinary sparrow.

After standing in the veggie patch for a while I managed to capture a sparrow. They are introduced to Australia and are not found in Western Australia and I might say they don't want them there.
Fine! There is even a reflection in his/her eye. The Boke is wonderful!

They are getting increasingly rare here (UK) so I am glad in a way that they have been introduced elsewhere!
This is a wonderful shot.

There's nothing everyday or ordinary about this pic. The DoF is perfect and I can't believe the definition you've got

Pour little sparrows. They were introduced here in America and now cover the entire continent. Now of course, they are just part of the landscape. Nice shot.

They are probably like our house sparrows who originally came from England. Some consider them pesky although I've never had any trouble with them. Cute shot & he looks very proud to be a sparrow. God watches over them, too ;-)

A superb portrait of a common bird........& sorry someone gave them to you; introductions so often end in disaster!

Great shot of a perky little chap! They are getting rarer here in UK but we have had a little colony of them nesting in our eaves for as long as we have been here and I love them!

Awww he is cute... how do they stop them crossing the WA border? I had these visions of little border patrol huts manned with birds lol. What were they introduced here for, do you know? I didn't know that about these little guys!

@piedfly That is so true, they upset the eco system balance!

@ozziehoffy They we introduced in 1860 1870 from Britain and Europe to make Australia more like home so wikipedia tells me. I am laughing as I write this have you never crossed the border into WA. it certainly is an experience.

@tesssa Ooooh well, that's an interesting reason why they were introduced... usually it's "pest" control! LOL... nope, never been there! I do know they're very stringent on dirt etc too... I used to be in vehicle transport industry and having anything in a car that was travelling on the truck was a no no but even more so if it was going to WA!!

@ozziehoffy We had things packed in Kiwi fruit boxes. They took the boxes.
