Camera-Critters #57: Sparrow (麻雀), Passer Montanus

Sparrow must be the most common bird.  When I was young, it was the only bird that I know and saw everyday.  They were everywhere.  Now, when I pay more attention to the bird around me.  I saw many different kinds of bird and sparrows are actually not so numerous as I remember.  They move fast as a group and quite often on the ground seeking foods, which make getting a photograph of them without complicated background quite difficult.  Two weeks ago, I was in the Guandu Nature Park and saw this little thing posing perfectly for me on top of a wooden post.

Great shot of the sparrow. I see a lot even at my bird feeders. But they are still cute. TFS

When I was younger there were lots more sparrows then there are nowadays. I think they are even close to becoming a protected species in our country. I can vaguely remember something in the news about that last year.

Great shot!

That's a great shot of the sparrow !!

We have quite a few that live in a tree, just down the road from us..

I've been trying to get a shot of them, but the dog next door starts barking as soon as I pass him and scares the birds off !!
