House Sparrows



They waited, looked round and then they flew away. Piotr took these photos few days ago near our home. For more birds please visit World Birds Wednesday

Beautiful birds to see at the moment all gathering in numbers here on top of hedges at the moment Imanaged a couple of video clips at the weekend I hope to share soon.
Little brown jobs they may be but I love them...

Lots of house sparrows there. They are considered a nuisance where I live but some people still like them.

If they're house sparrows, why aren't they in the house? ;-) I've heard of barn sparrows before...but...

Nice shots, Piotr. Very familiar birds that are pleasant to have around.

I didn't know that HOSP would flock together. Nice captures!

Are they all sparrows??? Wow, I don't think I have ever seen so many at once.

Nice shots. There can be rather many birds in a flock, like you show here.

Pat said...

Nice shots! We have quite a few juveniles that have joined the flock here.

Those birds are starting to flock, can autumn be far away? ;-)WBW

So many of them now around my place. Seems like they must have just fledged! As you photo is showing!

Hi there - sparrows are an under-rated bird. I wonder how far people would travel to see them if they were rare!

House sparrows may be common but they are not at all easy to capture except in in an outdoor restaurant where they rely on scraps.
