Wonderful shot, Graham! Looks like a band on the right foot of lower bird, yes?

Sparrows - very underestimated little birds. I remember them in their thousands when I was a child, and now there are so few.

We really don't see many sparrows any more and I believe they are really reducing in numbers. I have just been watching our bird feeding station and saw a male and a female sparrow in the bush next to the station. They flew down to the ground to feed on spilt seed. Was lovely to see them. I wonder where they are nesting. When we moved into this house 11 years ago it had a chimney which wasn't being used for a fire, and to the side of it there was a part that had been boxed in to hide the stop tap to the water supply. In there I found 3 baby sparrows that had fallen from their nest above. I took them to a wildlife rescue centre where they were pleased to raise and release them back to the wild. That was the last time I saw any sparrows until recently. So it's nice to see them back in the garden. The other bird we don't seem to see any more is the starling. I miss their spectacularly shiny coloured plumage!

What a fabulous photo, Graham! It's a beauty. We get many sparrows in the yard here in So California (non that I recall in Nova Scotia). For all my life I think we considered them common-place, so I was sorry to read they've disappeared from some areas!

Brilliant capture. They look so sweet.

So gentle and sweet, we are trying to plant flowers that appeal to the birds, including our wrens and sparrows. I hope they're not getting smaller in number!
