Description: We have a few hundered little sparrows, (or so it seems) along with other birds that line up in the trees, along the fence and on the gate waiting for me to get up in the morning with their seed. Something I love doing for our little feathered friends in winter, there is not much food around for them this time of the year. In return they provide me with hours of entertainment as well as photographic opportunities. This capture is probably one that could never be repeated again, the rooster just happen to be in the background while I was taking shots of the sparrows, and it was not long after this that the chooks spotted the seed and joined the sparrows feast. I have not tampered with the image aside from adding a little colour in Picasa. Every now and then I manage to capture an image that makes me go WOW!!, for me this is a Wow!! capture, I am thrilled with it, and it has now become my desktop. I don't think I could get the same capture again.
The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a species of passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It occurs naturally in most of Europe, the Mediterranean region, and much of Asia. It has also been intentionally or accidentally introduced to many parts of the world, making it the most widely distributed wild bird. It is strongly associated with human habitations, but it is not the only sparrow species found near houses. It is a small bird, with feathers mostly different shades of brown and grey.
