Lovely feather detail Ed and the colours of bird, background and perch nicely compliment each other. Smile John

We used to see dozens of sparrows in the garden years ago but I seldom see a single one these days: pigeons, magpies, tits and the occasional robin is about it.
So nice to see this wee specimen which brings back memories of how things were.

Blending in but standing out ( a contradiction I know) - so fluffy I can feel those soft feathers.
Nice catch light too.

Jack Sparrow definitely shows a victorious pose on top of his perch.
It seems we hardly see them now, believe it or not I only see them during my rare visits to town!
