Silent Sparrow.

A young House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) staying silent while perched in the hawthorn.

  1. Beautiful pose! I wish they come around my house too. I've seen them around,but never anywhere near the house.

  2. Hmm, I find photographing birds difficult in the summer. All the foliage gets in the way. This is a very nice photo of the sparrow.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Isn't it delightful to "meet" new people?

  3. A good picture of the young Sparrow, Frank.

  4. Very handsome!
    nice capture.

  5. Amila. We are fortunate to have them here all year round.

    Adrienne. They usually hide away over here as well but sometimes you just get lucky. Look forward to dropping in on you from time time as well.

  6. Cheers Bob. Just altered the blog template backgound for a change!

    Craig. Thanks very much.

  7. Lovely little chap, wonder what it was looking at... thinking about. Really like your new template. I told someone that changed their template a couple of weeks ago, I am terrified I would lose everything. Have a great week and stay safe.

  8. Mary. As long as you always save a backup of your existing template (HTML) then you can always revert back.

  9. Hi Kerri. Ta very much....for once one of them sat still in the open. Must have been my lucky day!
