House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)

A clutch of sparrows captured during the recent spell of glorious sunshine.

  1. These really work, especially the first two which have stunning natural frames.

  2. The first and second are particularly good Tim.
    A much overlooked species.

  3. Little cuties, do you ever see Tree Sparrows over your way? I haven't seen any for years.

  4. Hi Toffeeapple. No, sadly I too haven't seen one in quite some time. Even the House Sparrows are a far from common sight around here. Not rare, of course (nowhere near), but still a long way from as numerous as they once were – Tim
