It's spring, it's nest building season and we have a new tenant in the bird house...
This Male House Sparrow is very protective of his new home.
I hear him chirping all of the time and this bird house is about 50 feet away from my desk.
To say he is loud, is a huge understatement.

He jumps down occasionally, but never seems to fly off!
The House Sparrow is a very common sparrow, rarely seen far from homes and farms.
Often tame where it is regularly fed.

Sexes are dissimilar.
Sparrows are so often overlooked because they are not colorful and don't stand out.
But they have a beautiful feather pattern, with lots of gray, black and brown.
I'm sure we are going to have babies soon!
