Sparrow sunbathing today


Sparrow sunbathing today

My garden is full of cute sparrows.
They love hopping around the hedges, and sunning themselves in the shrubs.

We have more sparrows here than any other bird and never really took any notice of them before as we had so many different species at the other place and didn't realise how funny they were. I love to watch them. I hope you are feeling a lot happier today, Terra ! xxx

Thanks Jane, Rose, Neena and Chris ..

These sunny shrubs and climbers are just outside my kitchen door ... a quiet, more private part of my garden above the dog run area ... the little birds feel safe there :o)

Lovely photo of the sparrow. We have quite a few that live in next doors very tall hawthorn hedge. It's really lovely to hear them tweeting to one another. (and they haven't got a computer!)

The sparrow was very obliging, keeping still for the photo !

Lovely photo TT , I spied a Blue Tit going into a nesting box yesterday It seems early but I expect they are already on the look out for likely homes .....

Lucky you, not a bird to be seen here.......so sad.

20 Jan, 2014

 

Do you have bird baths ?
Sparrows love those ...

20 Jan, 2014

 

Yes we do, two, I am sure it is something to do with the wet, we have had a tremendous amount of rain this year.....just hoping the blackbirds dont let us down......

how close were you? glad that sparrows are thriving, they've been through some lean times lately

lovely photo..sparrows and robins are my favourites...here in Canada birds have to be tough to survive, and sparrows do that very well, even in the heart of the city..i admire them for that, bless their wee hearts..thanks for sharing
