Male and female House Sparrows

with No Comments
There is something very cheering standing next to a hedgerow full of chirping House Sparrows. If that hedge is also overhung by blooming camellias lit up by bright spring sunshine then even these, often considered dull birds, can appear quite exotic.

Sadly the House Sparrow population is declining, thought to be as a result of both changing agricultural land use and gardening practices.

These male and female House Sparrows were seen along a lane leading to Rosemullion Head, near Falmouth, Cornwall.
