House Sparrow

 The House Sparrow, familiar across North America, primarily because of its affinity for people.
Seldom seen far from houses and farms, it is often tame where it is fed regularly.
Abundant in this area, it is fun to watch them dust-bathe.

Often overlooked because of its "brown" color, it is a pretty bird with a beautiful feather pattern.
This is the male.





You can see its feather pattern and markings well here.

- a bird doesn't sing because it has an answer...it sings because it has a song -

Your bird photos are so amazing, Debbie! Always! Such beautiful patterns and colours. I use those browns all the time in my paintings.
