House Sparrow in the sun

A lovely House Sparrow sitting in the sun waiting to get onto the feeders. This time of the year the feeders are very busy, but the time that the sun is shining on them is quite limited, so it is lovely when all the elements come together like this.

Sparrow, Goldfinch and Greenfinch feeding together

See, they can play nicely when they want! This photo shows the 3 main types of birds we get on the kernels feeder. The one that is missing is the Blue Tit.

Sparrows

I love this photo, not technically great, but I love the Four Sparrow chicks waiting to be fed on the fence.
