Just taking a bath

By Loupix  
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.

This is a really well-timed shot, Reas, with some fantastic detail. We have some nesting here so look forward to a new brood very soon.
