A Lineup Of Sparrows


At this time of year it is not unusual to come upon a large flock of sparrows poking around in a patch of weeds and they are often reluctant to move very far. That was the case here where I disturbed a group of them who then went to the top of this fence and glared at me until I had gone by and they could resume their foraging.

The sparrows are on the move. They came to visit me this morning.

I had an encounter with a flock of birds yesterday too. They scattered to a nearby tree and waited for me to make my way past.

They don't seem to be very scared of you! How neat to see so many!

Sparrows are fun to watch. We have had a flock foraging on our deck for the past few days. At least they held still on the fence for your photo.

That's a lot of sparrows. Thanks for sharing this.

Indeed a common sight also here in Holland.

A nice congregation! Sparrows are rarely seen here due to the increase in Rock Pigeon population.

I love seeing them gathering. The grackles and red-wings are grouping for their trips south. I love the change.
