Duck !!!

By bricurtis
House Sparrows.

Two families of House Sparrows still feeding in the garden despite being nearly full grown.Just a hint of the young ones gape in the shot.
Got this one between showers of rain.

It amused me to see the the youngster in the middle duck down so that the parent could feed the one on the end. Smile

Thank you for viewing - appreciated.

Superb shot and looks even better viewed large, don't see many Sparrows here Brian, I think the Bluetit has really taken over, they are everywhere at the moment,

I think House Sparrows seem to colonize Geoff - I know here are lots of areas in the UK where they are scarce - the same as Tree Sparrows.
Not had a Blue Tit in the garden since winter.Sad
