I agree with Buddejagar. I think it's a common sparrow with some sort of a gene mutation.

 

Lol Stan.. They each have to have a turn... :o)

No doubt about it Karen.. you will and much longer. You will never allow anything to tear you from your garden....lol

It is lovely Bloomer. Precious memories. It's wonderful that they each want to spend so much time with us even Matthew who is coming up 13 this August. Blimey, where did the time go..

 

Blimey Derek. I've had mine about 30 years and transplanted lots of tubers around too. It's a pity the flowering period is so short.

 

Now I understand why the name... :o)

 

The elliottiana are much too tender to risk leaving them in the border. What a shame she lost it.

 

Ah!! Stera she is gorgeous, so like my daughters in looks and colour except Moggy is a Tomcat, our cats are the same, they can be found sitting or sleeping any place they choose, in a cats opinion a home is to be used by all and nothing is sacred, if the cat fits it will sit, lol....

 

Shedman aka Dave from the office is the one who takes care of it,I think he is father to one of the founders, not sure which one so won't put my foot in it, mind you I haven't seen anything from him for approx 18mths, I wonder what does happen to these sites if everyone gives up, also what about the people who helped run some of the pages, is it still run the same way or are we ambling along on a wing and a prayer...

 

I think it might be a common house sparrow (female) with leucism (partial albinism). Apparently, sparrows with varying amounts of white are fairly common.

I found this pic of one:

I guess so...not as dainty as they look, lol

 

That's terrible. I would be horrified to see rats in my yard. I remember once I went to visit a friend. At his house I saw a huge rat walk across the floor. I was in shock. He just ignored it like it was nothing. lol

I must of had every ones luck that year then lol I dont feed the bird any more as rats come in the garden after the food when I do . As parts of the city are over run with rats I wont encourage them as one area is not that far from where I live.
