This species is one of the commonest birds of Europe and Asia, but it has been very successfully introduced to all other parts of the world. It is essentially a city bird, in this case my home town Tamworth.

The female lays three to eight eggs on the thick feather lining in the nest and both partners take turns incubating for 13 to 14 days. The young fledge within 17 days, and after they have left the nest the parents prepare to raise further broods - sometimes as many as four.

The diet consists chiefly of seeds, buds and the green parts of plants, supplemented in summer by insects.

The sparrow is mostly resident, although in autumn flocks may form which roam around the locality.

Photo Info:-

Exposure :- 1/20s @f/10
Exposure mode :- Auto
Exposure Program :- Aperture Priority
ISO speed :- 400
Focal Length :- 200
Metering mode :- Pattern
White balance :- Daylight

This was a difficult shoot using only a focal length of 200, this helped me realise the importance of a more powerful zoom.

I left quite a lot of the tree in the frame as I liked the texture; I personally think it adds to the photo.
