They obviously think they have a vitamin deficiency, Nathan, and where better to get a top up of iron than a nice juicy patch of spinach, grown especially by some kind human Grin. A great set of captures. Carol

Excellently captured, Nathan, I hope you made them finish their greens before they were allowed pudding!
Shame a couple of the versions have the spinach more in focus than the sparrows.

We are gradually loosing the sight of domestic sparrows due to rampant use of pesticides .

A cute series of little sparrow.

Adorable! I didn't know sparrows eat green stuff.

Mind you, saying that, if the pigeons don't get their share of the bird food they eat my flowers. I've found whole clumps of shamrocks beheaded before now and have had to shoo the pests off my garden on a number of occasions.
